Lebanese Recipes

Cimg0589_2 Lebanese people eat soft flat bread around 30 cm big (see the picture).  It is rounded and thinner than Indian Nan that it looks like. 

Here are two typical recipes:

*Manou’shi: traditional style baked with olive oil and thyme.  Olive oil and thyme are very popular in Lebanon like in other Mediterranean countries.  Japanese staffs are enjoying the foreign taste familiar in small villages in the South of Lebanon. 

*Labneh: crisped and served with olive oil and sour cream, as popular as Manou’shi.  The exotic mixture of crisp and sour cream excites Japanese staffs gain. 

In winter, people in villages bake it on a hot stove at home.
