November 2018. With M.A.D. we go to Beirut as Walid and Riad invited us to come.

About their hospitality and our guest shows I will write later – today I will focus on something different. In fact, they were more hospitable than we could have imagined – we got so close to the Lebanon culture and cuisine as one only can during a 7-day visit. Everyday feasts, two, four or even five meetings by the table, the common table which was always full of delicacies. During all that time neither in restaurants, bars, food stalls nor houses had we seen hummus or tabbouleh which are always cited as the key Lebanon dishes. So we pose questions.
