Some like it hot!

Taste & Flavors - - EDITORIAL -

In Beirut, the sum­mer heat can be in full swing by midMay all the way into Oc­to­ber. This long stretch of­fers the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to ex­per­i­ment with sea­sonal cui­sine and, of course, wine. The heat dic­tates a very sim­ple for­mula for food and drinks – keep it light like our Quick & Easy cheese pair­ings for that per­fect al­fresco nib­ble or go one step fur­ther with our Spe­cial Oc­ca­sion menu – fresh tomato salad to start, with a peach and almond tart for dessert. If turn­ing on an oven is not on the cards, our sor­bet recipes are sure to cool you down. Or, add a touch of liquor to that frozen treat and you’ll get the ideal party drink for din­ner with friends.

This year at HORECA Beirut, the mag­a­zine had carte blanche with a full lineup of celebrity chefs, so we’ve shared their recipes from gourmet cre­ations to Le­banese fa­vorites. We were even privy to the tips and tricks of France’s Mas­ter Chef, Thierry Marx, shar­ing his sig­na­ture dish and Le­banon’s sweet­heart, Salma Hayek, re­veal­ing which mezze she grew up eat­ing. Yes, the Miche­lin stars seemed to align to bring you the most celebrity-f illed is­sue we’ve had yet. So, sit back on that beach chair, re­lax and get a taste of T&F.
