The evening of 25 June 2022 saw guests at Doltone House Sydney transported to another era at WLCU Sydney’s Inaugural Rome Comes to Lebanon Event. The Night commemorated over 700 years of Roman rule in Lebanon, a period which saw six Emperors come from our great Lebanon. In doing so, we celebrated the Roman and Lebanese cultures and the way they have evolved together.
Events like our recent Rome Comes To Lebanon Gala Event require a multitude of support. It would not be possible to host such a function without the generous donations of our corporate sponsors, raffle prize donations, and flower sponsors.
The WLCU Sydney is extremely grateful for the generosity and support of our fantastic Sponsors, and we ask that you utilise their wonderful services when possible

On Thursday 7th April 2022, the World Lebanese Cultural Union Sydney hosted its HSC Distinguished Achievers Awards night event at the University of New South Wales Roundhouse.

This edition’s recipe is the savoury and delicious Mehshee Sleeh, a very popular Lebanese meal that can be adapted to stuff most vegetables. This recipe has been very kindly provided by our very own Madam Secretary Mrs Petra Fakhry. Sahtein!Kaak is an all-time favourite biscuit in most (if not all) Lebanese families and households. For many, a cup of ahqui tastes even better with kaak on the side. This fabulous recipe is by Elaine Riachi handed down to her daughter, Samia, and to all her friends and neighbours. It has also appeared in the Sahtain Recipe Book.
