Lebanese culture is grounded by food and family and laughter and love. So often, we only see images of disaster from the Middle East, but there is so much joy in Lebanese culture. Joy that is accompanied by food.
I still can't believe Beirut has been destroyed. Again. I have such fond memories of walking with my father in two of the hardest hit neighborhoods, Achrafieh and Gemmayze.
If I could be there now, I would bake for the people who have lost their homes and their family. Maybe I would bake something decadent, like this chocolate cake, which is not “survival” food, but instead is sensuous and joyous and alive.
