The Delights of Middle Eastern Cooking

Shaped by its rich history, culture, and long-standing traditions, Middle Eastern cuisine is multi-faceted and complex. While each country has its own local delicacies to offer, there are some culinary staples that can be considered the backbone of many Middle Eastern dishes. Among them are grains like couscous and bulgur, as well as fava beans, rice, and wheat that is used to make flatbreads or pita. Other common ingredients in Middle Eastern cooking are chickpeas for hummus or falafel, and honey and tahini that is loved for its nutty notes. Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate in the region, you’ll also find an abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs such as eggplants, parsley, and mint. Aromatic spices like turmeric and saffron add intense flavor as well as bright coloring to any Middle Eastern dish, and various cheeses and yogurt-based sauces also provide freshness when enjoyed with grilled lamb, chicken, or beef.
