Lebanese Coooking Menu - Appetizers

A taste of Lebanon - I am sharing this post for all blogger friends.

In a Lebanese household, food is life and sharing it is one of the great joys of being alive. And even for simple dinners at home, there are a variety of dishes on the table, the meal starting with small portions known as mezze which centers around dips and salads.

As well as having great variety, Lebanese food is one of the freshest and most delicious on the planet. 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.

For this delicious food, an elegant and romantic atmosphere is needed. Enjoy and dive into them with a renewed appetite.
