Mediterranean cuisine, inspired by the sun-kissed regions bordering the Mediterranean Sea – spanning from the olive groves of Spain in the west to the fertile Nile Delta of Egypt in the east – is celebrated for its emphasis on fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood, and olive oil.
Italy entices with its iconic pizza and pasta creations, while Greece serves up its famed moussaka and tzatziki. Spain introduces the world to its vibrant tapas culture and paella, contrasted by France’s coastal-inspired ratatouille and bouillabaisse. Portugal, with its bacalhau dishes and pastéis de nata, adds a unique touch. On the eastern shores, Lebanon champions tabbouleh and hummus, and Egypt‘s hearty koshary showcases the region’s grain and legume prowess.
