Barbara Sweets

Macaron via MarmiteetPonpon

It was Saint Barbara yesterday in Lebanon and I always look forward to this day for two things:
– The Atayef (قطايف) that my mum prepares.
– Other Barbara sweets like the Macaron and Ouwaymet and wheat.

If you are interested in doing Maakaron yourself, check out MarmiteetPonpon’s recipe and TasteofBeirut’s recipe. TasteofBeirut has also a nice recipe for Ashta Atayef.

Happy Barbara everyone!

Beirut+TV is not yet another TV station in Lebanon. It’s a new animated web series that will tackle topics and situations that every Lebanese experiences in a way or another. I think there’s a lot of potential behind Beirut+TV and I have tons of ideas to share with the super talented Maya Zankoul, Tony of course and the whole WeZank team.

We saw a couple of episodes at the launch but the first one is only available for now. Stay tuned and keep checking [Beirut+TV] for further updates.

The Famous Kraytem Cake Shop Secrets Is Now Open In Jal el Dib

I was on my way out from O&C supermarket yesterday when I spotted Secrets right next to it. I went in and asked them whether it’s the same cake shop from Koraytem and they confirmed it. Apparently they’ve been open for 2 weeks now. I’ve never been to Secrets Koraytem but I’ve tasted a lot of cakes that my friends used to bring for birthday or special occasions and they were really good.

I didn’t get cakes though yesterday but something even better. Marshmallows mixed with Nutella chocolate and nuts. I will share a picture of them later on my Instagram.

Pocket Listing: A Hollywood Movie Starring Lebanese-American James Jurdi

hah

This is the first time I hear about James Jurdi. He’s a Lebanese-American actor and writer and is starring alongside Rob Lowe, Burt Reynolds and the hot Jessica Clark in his new movie “Pocket Listing”. Jurdi co-wrote and starred in three other movies, Price in 2007, Nocturnal Errands in 2012 and Reaper in 2014.

His new movie is coming out very soon in Lebanese theaters. I am definitely watching it as the trailer seems interesting.
