Importance of Arabic Food


  • Like many cultures, food in the Arabic culture has a large presence at family gatherings and celebrations. The types of dishes and their natural/organic ingredients vary greatly from region to region in the Middle East. But what stays the same is the value of generosity in the Arabic society.
  • There are several popular Middle Eastern dishes that are inexpensive, nutritious and easy to prepare such as Hummus, Falafel, M’jaddarah (in Syria and Egypt), Manakish with thyme (in Lebanon), Kabsa (in Arabian Peninsula), Couscous (in Morocco), Mallow with rabbits (in Egypt), types of Shish Burak and kibbah, Mahshi (in Syria and neighbor countries), Jordanian Mansaf and Iraqi Maskuf.
