About Lebanese Food

Post by Sami's Kitchen

Food is life in a Lebanese household and sharing it is one of the greatest joys. There are a variety of dishes on the table, starting with small portions known as mezza that is mainly dips and salads.
Lebanese food is one of the freshest and most delicious cuisine you will ever taste. Lamb is the meat of choice and appears in many dishes including kafta in which minced lamb is rolled into sausage shapes and cooked on the barbecue or in the oven.

Lebanese sweets just as divine, there are many variations of filo pastry combined with nuts and syrup; there are creamy sweets filled with a clotted cream called ashta plus melting shortbread sometimes filled with a date paste or nuts and much more.
