We are leaving the European shores once more headding to the eastern Mediterranean. The next country we visit is Syria.

The country is bordered by Turky, the Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan. The different influences on the cuisine are versitile.

Not many people know Syrian Cuisine, though is is famous and considered among the best cuisines in the region. The Mezzeh is an important part of every meal. Tabouleh, and yogurt dips are served. Pommegranate is used in cooking, so are dares and olives. Lamb is served a lot as a main course. The sweets are often made with honey and nuts.

Start date is the 10th of Novemer 2010.
End date is the 10th of December 2010.

Once more I could find a really great cook book on the local cuisine.
