Saveur.com posted yesterday the menu for a cozy fall dinner inspired by the home cooking of Lebanon. It included Fattet Hummus, Kafta bil Sayniyeh, Loubieh Bi Zeit, Tabbouleh, Zaatar Man’oushé and Ma’amoul bil Tamer.
If it were up to me, I’d replace Fattet Hummus with a Kechek soup and the Tabbouleh with Fattoush or maybe get mini Zaatar and Kechek Manakish to replace the big Zaatar Man2ouche and Fatté. As for Maamoul, I don’t know why I never enjoyed eating them except on holidays, mainly Easter. Um Ali would be a perfect replacement but it’s not Lebanese.
