Indulge your senses with the fresh flavours and fragrant aromas of Middle Eastern cuisine.

Middle Eastern cuisine features a kaleidoscope of different cooking traditions, originating from different parts of the region.

Arab, Afghan, Iranian, and Israeli cuisines fall into the category, as well as Assyrian, Azerbaijani and Armenian cooking styles.

Georgian, Kurdish, Cypriot, and Turkish foods are also part of this broad offering.

The different cooking styles within Middle Eastern cuisine share some common ingredients, including olive oil, pita bread, lamb, poultry, haloumi, chickpeas, and other grains.

Herbs and spices like garlic, sumac, parsley, and mint feature heavily in Middle Eastern cooking, not to mention sweeter items like honey, figs, and dates.

The region is said to be home to the fertile crescent, where wheat was first cultivated, followed by barley, lentils, and other local foods.

Sitting at the centre of Asia, Europe, North Africa and the Caucasus, Middle Eastern cooking has been influenced by trade and wars throughout the ages.

For example, the region is believed to have discovered turmeric and other spices from India, as well as dumplings from the Mongols.

Hospitality is at the heart of Middle Eastern cuisine, known for its impressive feasts with tender meats, spiced salads, and colourful mezes, which are small plates of flavoursome dips and sides.

Today, hummus, falafel, tabouleh, and shawarma are popular Middle Eastern foods that are found across the globe.

But if you’re looking for something more traditional, try Kabuli Palau, which is an Afghan rice dish with carrots, sultanas, almonds, and either lamb, beef, or chicken.

Alternatively, try some mantoo steamed dumplings, filled with lamb, onion and spices, or koroutti yoghurt soup.
