Generally speaking ‘Mediterranean cuisine’ comes from all the countries that surround the Mediterranean Sea. These include France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Turkey, and various other countries. The key to creating superb Mediterranean food is fresh ingredients – crisp salad greens, full fat natural yoghurt, olive oil, black pepper and quality meat, poultry and seafood. Plus don’t forget the eggplants, rice, grains, artichokes, tomatoes, legumes, mushrooms, onions, cucumbers and olives!
Mediterranean food is great for entertaining because it is easy to share. Simply serving some lovely fresh Lebanese bread together with some homemade hummus, baba ghanoush and beetroot dip is a great way to break the ice and get the party started. Then for mains you can follow it up with some char grilled meats, fresh tabouleh, and maybe even some baklava as a sweet treat to finish.
