L’Orient Today’s culinary heritage series explores the stories behind Lebanon’s favorite foods. Food tells us the story of our heritage, which is preserved through the recipes we so often enjoy. Every day we (often unknowingly) consume history — both figuratively and literally. Recipes are a living, traveling thing, retaining and losing ingredients along the way. But more than that, the food we eat tells us a lot about ourselves. It reveals us, sometimes unwillingly, in a “tell me what you eat and I'll tell you what you believe,” kind of way. From home cooked comforts to street food favorites old and new, we offer you this sense-indulging ride through Lebanon’s rich and flavorful culinary history. Enjoy, and of course, sa7tein.
