what is levant food

The Levant is a geographical term that refers to a large area south of Turkey, bounded by the Mediterranean Sea in the west, the Arabian Desert in the south, and Mesopotamia in the east. 

The term is sometimes more widely used to refer to countries in the region immediately bordering the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. 

The Levant region historically and culturally has a passionate bond to food that is closely associated with working the land and the sea, spending time with family and forging of strong bonds with friends and the outdoors.

Mediterranean nutrition is based on a healthy balanced diet of fresh legumes and fruit, cereals, fish, meat and dairy. Levantine and Middle Eastern food marries that element with an abundance of flavours and aromas that come from the rich herbs and spices that historically have been traded on ancient trading routes from as far away as East Asia.

 The East Mediterranean, is a region filled with tradition and great food!
