Lebanese Food > Wiki


Lebanese or Levant cuisine is the food from the area including and surrounding modern-day Lebanon. The cuisine is noted as one of the world's healthiest as it includes many low-processed vegetables, fruits, cereals, nuts, and legumes. The cuisine also includes many vegetarian recipes, although meat ones are common, too.

Modern Lebanese cuisine is the result of many inter-continental influences. It is a mixture of standard Arabic, French, Turkish, and Greek cuisines.

Today, Lebanese food is popular in many parts of the world for its versions of hummus, falafel, kebabs, shawarma, and desserts such as baklawa.
