This Week’s Film: The Syrian Bride
Cuisine: Syrian

One of Syria’s most popular culinary traditions is meze or mezza, an array of dishes to nosh and nibble over the course of several hours. Popular mezza include dips and salads served with lettuce leaves and khubz flatbread for scooping. This week’s recipe includes not one but three Syrian mezza: a roasted garlic and eggplant dip called Mutabal, a classic tabouli made with couscous, tomatoes, mint and parsley, and a delicious lentil and tomato salad seasoned with cumin.
