the food is in all aspects of a person’s life in Lebanon. This country is known as the melting pot of the Middle East because over the course of history many civilizations gathered here, bringing their own recipes and their own way of creating food. Lebanon FoodCulture

Lebanese dishes are cooked with olive oil, a substance that has no saturated fat. It has proven to lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and strokes. Coincidentally, populations from the Middle Eastern region have longer life expectancies. Other popular ingredients used in Lebanese dishes include bulgur, garlic, parsley, and mint.

Below, we’ve narrowed down some of our favorite Lebanese dishes and drinks.

The Basics:

Tabouleh, hummus, falafel, and shwarma are the staples that we are all familiar with and most of us have probably tried before. To be in the land where these items were originally created is a true treat. One of the key ingredients that I would see over and over in Lebanese food was mint. It dominated everything from salads to sandwiches giving everything a fresh taste. A simple sandwich of cucumber, tomato, and mint was common for lunch. Fattoush was also a common salad eaten weekly. It was simple, fresh, and green; filled with cucumber, parsley, tomato, and green onions. But my favorite was, of course, the falafel with its tangy white sauce and handfuls of mint-

Bread: bread is fairly common, but the variety of choice flat, like pita bread
Hummus: a dip consisting of mashed chickpeas (garbanzo beans), tahini, garlic, and lemon
Tabbouleh: a “salad” generally made of parsley, bulgur, tomatoes, garlic, and lemon

Regional Variations, Specialties, & Unique Dishes

Dolma: fruits, meats, and/or vegetables with rice stuffed in grape leaves, but sometimes also served in peppers or tomatoes
Kebab: numerous styles exist, but usually with a base of roasted lamb or chicken and vegetables in pita bread
Mezze: a sampling of numerous dishes, generally including small plates up to grilled meats

Dining Etiquette-When eating in Lebanon there are a few etiquette rules you must know and follow, but first you must know if your host and other diners are Christian or Muslim as this may alter the dining rules in some regards. If in doubt on the present company, try to dress on the conservative side (see our Lebanon Culture menu for more details). Second, in conservative homes, it is not acceptable to eat with a person of the opposite sex unless they are related or married. While this is very uncommon today, to some conservative Muslims this is important so observe the local restaurant’s situation and follow a local’s lead

  • […] Day 1: Get to Know MadeiraMadeira: Best of the East Tour from FunchalYou’ve landed on this small island in the Atlantic – now it’s time to have a look around. Funchal has been the capital of Madeira for five centuries; it’s also the largest city on the island with a population of 100,000. Wander around, get a feel for the leisurely pace of life and visit the 15th-century Se Cathedral. It’s common to see children practicing their soccer skills here—this is Portugal team captain Cristiano Ronaldo’s birthplace after all. Then head out for a grand tour of the island. Travel to the island’s Encumeada summit; stand on top of the world’s second-highest sea cliff at Cabo Girao; and visit volcanic swimming pools at Porto Moniz. In the evening, see the island from a different viewpoint on an evening cruise along the coast. Check another offerDay 2: Explore the Island TownsNow that you’ve gotten a taste for the beauty of Madeira, dive a little deeper. Head out to the village of Camacha, famous for its wickerwork artisans, and Santana, a town known for its pointed thatched-roof cottages. Or try another famous island specialty, Madeira wine. Come nightfall, learn more about the history and folklore of the islands with a night of traditional food and dance.Day 3: Go Wildlife SpottingGiven its wild beauty, it’s no surprise that Madeira teems with wildlife. Go whale-watching and dolphin-spotting, or head out to the untouched Desertas Islands, a European Biogenetic Reserve, to see turtles and seabirds. Those who prefer to stay on dry land can go birdwatching or take a hike in Laurel Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage site full of birds and butterflies.Click here to see a new trip  […]
