Lebanon has established a reputation as the Middle East’s food capital. This is because of its fresh, excellent, and diverse cuisine. Hummus, falafel, and tabbouleh are served in Lebanese restaurants all over the world. Moreover, international chefs put their own fashionable touch on classic recipes.
However, the finest place to experience Lebanese cuisine is in Lebanon, where it is cooked with care by those who know it well.
