That’s right, if you are a fan of cuisines of the Middle East region, you will love this new addition to our many offerings. Here is a short excerpt from the new central hub page for this grouping of ethnic cuisines:

“Middle Eastern Cuisine are the foods that come out of the countries in the region where Africa, Europe, and Asia come together. The “Middle East” is really a loosely defined conglomerate of countries, distinguished in modern times for convenience.

“The Middle East as it is known as today was formerly referred to as the Near East. The lands bordering the eastern and southern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, extending from Morocco to the Arabian Peninsula and Iran and, by some definitions, even beyond.

“Technically, with the exception of Egypt, which is part of Africa, and Turkey, which is a part of the landmass of Europe, the “Middle East” is otherwise part of Asia.That distinction acknowledged, most people today think of the Middle East as being its own region. And Middle Eastern cuisine has its own distinctive qualities that distinguish it considerably from European, Asian, and African cuisines.

And Middle Eastern cuisine is a very healthy diet …”
