Every country has its own version of meatballs, and in Lebanon they call them kafta. The traditional Lebanese kafta is a mix of ground lamb and beef with spices and herbs but you can make them with just ground beef or ground lamb. Serve them with yogurt sauce with a hint of sumac and it will transport you to the streets of Lebanon.
Shawarma is a Middle Eastern method of slowly pit roasting meat on a rotating skewer. Originally from Ottoman Turkey and made with lamb, today shawarma is also made with chicken, turkey, beef or veal. King of street foods, in Lebanon, shawarma is typically topped with pickled onions, cucumbers, tahini, parsley and tomatoes.
Kousa Mahshi, or stuffed zucchini in Arabic, is a popular Lebanese dish during the summer months, when zucchini is at its prime. The traditional way to make kousa mahshi is to hollow out a whole zucchini and stuff it with a spiced meat ﬁlling.
Boeuf bourguignon is so much more than just another beef stew! This classic French dish, made so popular by Julia Child, is the kind of stew you make to impress your family, celebrate a winter birthday, or even serve up for the holidays.
Fish en Papillote
En papillote, pronounced "on poppy-yote", is a French method of slow-cooking ﬁsh in parchment paper - in a low-temperature oven. The sealed paper parcel retains moisture and steams the food. Fish is delicate and cooks quickly, which is why en papillote is a great (almost odorless) way to cook it!
French Roast Chicken
Roast chicken, or poulet rôti in French, is easy to make but the real secret to the famously tasty French roast chickens is their feed and rearing. The birds in France roam freely, happily pecking and scratching in the grass, their foraged food supplemented with milk and corn. Therefore, if possible, use free-range chicken to duplicate this delicious poulet rôti.
