Kaak (Lebanese Biscuit with Sesame Seeds)

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.

Lorna’s Spinach Pies (Fatayer-bi-Sabanekh)

Lebanon boasts such wonderful pies (“fatayer”), whether meat or vegetable, dating back to ancient times. They are the basis of the modern-day Australian meat pie, sausage rolls and Cornish pasties. These spinach pies are the ideal snack, mezza or meal – who knew that spinach could taste so remarkable!

RECIPE – Riz bi Haleeb (Lebanese Rice Pudding)

A comforting and scrumptious Lebanese desert, Riz bi Haleeb adds aromatic flavours to the universal rice pudding. This recipe uses Jasmine rice, as well as a combination of rose water and orange blossom water for distinctly Lebanese flavours.

Ghraybeh – Lebanese Butter Cookies

Ghraybeh are delicious and delicate Middle Eastern cookies that melt in your mouth. Whilst every effort is made to ensure traditional recipes are provided, it is acknowledged that every Lebanese village will have its own ‘special touches’. Thus the recipes passed down from one generation to another often vary slightly from village to village. We view this as part of the rich Lebanese culture.
