Dining Lebanese style is an occasion where the meal should not be hurried but enjoyed at a leisurely pace in good company. The meal consists of many different ‘taster’ dishes that are beautifully prepared by the chefs for guests’ enjoyment.
The meal begins with an array of different dips including creamy hummous and Muhammara which is made from grilled sweet red peppers blended with walnuts and olive oil and flavoured with paprika and other herbs.
