Lebanon and Italy, promoting the taste of regional cuisine
7 marzo 2013
Impossible to get the taste of a country without passing through regional traditions. And it is the same for Italy and Lebanon. From North to South the food becomes a true culinary and life experience only by "travelling" through culture, history, habits, environment, social organization. As it frequently happens aboard (and not only...), the Italian cuisine is a concentrate of few omnipresent recipes. Spaghetti e mandolino.....
