These “Arab pizzas” probably date back to the fifteenth century and would have appeared in the region of the Beqaa Valley in Eastern Lebanon close to the Syrian border, the capital of which is Baalbek. An Iraqi family named Haidar is at the origin of the recipe.
middle eastern orange cake - this looks delicious! Flourless. Amazing. I made this for my mother-in-law over the weekend and she loved it. I also covered it in a thin layer of chocolate ganache...! Yum.
Ghormeh Sabzi - Persian Herb Stew - I grew up eating this stew, it tastes so good. There are many variations on the ingredients for all Persian/Middle Eastern food -- it depends what country you come from and what part of the country you are in. This stew is popular all over Iran.
