Although it originated in the countries and cultures surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, Mediterranean Cuisine has fast become popular in restaurants across the world. It is not uncommon to find a pretty authentic Mezze Platter on many menus in restaurants we frequent, but few go beyond just the basics that we know. However the cuisine is rich, diverse and very hearty, gleaning from multiple countries such as Lebanon, Morocco, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Egyptian and Greek cuisines too. Often called Lebanese food, or food from the Middle East too, a Mediterranean menu usually is hearty, featuring the staples like good quality Olive Oil, wholesome legumes and some kind of flatbread. With a little preparation, this is an easy and delicious cuisine to cook in your own home. We will show you how.
