Authentic Middle Eastern Food Culture and Culinary Traditions

Middle Eastern Cuisine and Food Culture


Middle Eastern Food refers to a wide range of cuisines, from North African to Turkish, from Armenian to Israeli. The cuisine is defined by the region and the traditions of the people that live there. The deep, rich flavors of Middle Eastern food reflect the mysterious and exotic cultures that originated them. With the warm climate, foods like grapes, lemons, olives, mint, parsley and eggplant are commonly grown and found in many dishes. Each Middle Eastern region has its own unique individuality and food properly describes and defines the peculiar culture of every regions.

The dishes of Middle Eastern Cuisine contain flatbreads such as pita and legumes such as chickpeas or beans. Many dishes do not include meat. Because pork is neither kosher nor halal, most Jews and Muslims do not eat it, and it is thus a rarity in Middle Eastern food. Lamb or mutton is much more common than beef. Because the Quran forbids alcohol, Middle Eastern dishes are not cooked in wine or other alcoholic beverages. Middle Eastern Cuisine is full of regional variations, seasonal cooking and a food culture which is built on tradition, history, and passion. In almost every Middle Eastern region, food plays an important role and is about family, friends, and celebration.
