National Tabbouleh Day

A yearly national day, celebrated the first Saturday of the month
of July (this year the 7-7-2007), is dedicated to TABBOULEH.
The TABBOULEH is the most famous Lebanese traditional dish,
adulated by all the inhabitants of the cedar’s country, and
adopted by number of gastronomes in the world. It’s a dish that
unites, in a country torn by wars and tensions; a symbolic dish
by the diversity of its ingredients: Like the Lebanese nation, its
delicate harmony is threatened anytime that one of its
components is separated or even neglected, while its colors,
green, white and red are those of the Lebanese flag.

During this day, Lebanese and their friends everywhere in the
world meet in private or in public around this king of the mezzé.
This artistic, cultural, gastronomic and touristy feast presents
them an opportunity to show and to reinforce their attachment to
their country. This year, a big public gathering is organized at
Souk el Tayeb in Saifi Village (downtown - Beirut), where
savoring and competitions of the best TABBOULEH will take
place (
The edition 2007 of the NATIONAL TABBOULEH DAY will be
special since the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism granted it its
approval and its patronage officially.

Let's celebrate all together the next NATIONAL TABBOULEH
DAY that will take place on Saturday July 7, 2007.
