Libanonska kultura i hrana

Iako jedna od najmanjih, Libanon je zasigurno jedna od najljepših i najzanimljivijih zemalja Bliskog Istoka. To je zemlja bogate kulture i povijesti, a krasi je i prekrasna priroda.
Stoga ne čudi činjenica da je i libanonska kuhinja upravo sve ono što je i sam Libanon i njegovi stanovnici – bogata, zanimljiva i prekrasna. Libanonska je kuhinja istinska preslika bogate i karakteristične kulture.
Libanonci većinu svog slobodnog vremena provode družeći se s prijateljima i obitelji, bilo kroz razgovor uz tradicionalnu tursku kavu (Kahwah) ili uživajući u dobroj hrani. Libanonski stol je tipičan primjer svih elemenata karakterističnih za njihovu kulturu – druženje i dijeljenje. Umjesto tradicionalnog trodijelnog obroka, Libanonci hranu poslužuju kroz niz malih jela, koja imaju za cilj ne samo zadovoljiti glad već priuštiti zabavu. Zajedničko svim libanonskih jelima su obilje škroba, voća, povrća, svježe ribe i plodova mora. Perad se konzumira češće nego crveno meso, a kada se koristi crveno meso, tada je to obično janjetina. Kulturalni standardi gostoprimstva i strasti za hranom, etablirali su libanonsku kuhinju kao slavlje života.

 

Lebanese culture and cuisine

Although one of the smallest, lebanon is surely one of the most beautiful and interesting countries on the Middle East. It is a country of rich culture and history surrounded by beautiful nature.
For all the above, lebanese cuisine is everything that Lebanon and its inhabitants are – rich, interesting and beautiful. Lebanese cuisine is a true reflection of the country’s rich and distinctive culture.

Lebanese people spend much of their leisure time socialising, spending quality time with friends and family, taking part in lively conversations over Turkish coffee (Kahwah) and eating good food. The Lebanese dining table epitomises the social and “sharing” aspects intrinsic to the culture. Instead of a traditional three-course meal approach, Lebanese food is served in an array of small dishes, and is aimed not only at feeding diners’ stomachs, but also at entertaining them. Common Lebanese dishes include an abundance of starches, fruits, vegetables, fresh fish and seafood. Poultry is consumed more often than red meat, and when red meat is used in food preparation, it is usually lamb.
Cultural standards of hospitality and passion for food have established Lebanese cuisine in a class of its own; dining in the Lebanese tradition is a celebration of life, and an invigorating experience.
