The Middle East is a group of countries that range through from North Africa to large areas of Asia. Hundreds of years of travel by traders through the region has meant that there are similarities between some of the dishes. However although they may have similar names they can taste quite different because the ingredients vary throughout the region. Middle Eastern food today is defined by its past.
We will be cooking recipes from Syria, Turkey, Lebanon and Iran among others.

Fruit Salad with Orange, Honey and Orange Blossom Water from Morocco
