Now that I’m living in Lebanon, it’s so funny to read these articles about Syrian/Lebanese people in Trinidad. After all, it was in Trinidad that I first encountered Syrian/Lebanese food.
“Ah’len.It is the name of a cookbook produced by the Syrian Lebanese Women’s Association, and was launched at the International School of Port-of-Spain in Westmoorings on October 17. Among the women who collaborated on the project were Norma Hadad, Vanessa Sabga Aboud, Huda Nahous, Gabriella Azar, Leslie Chamely, Rosemarie Hadeed, Linda Hadeed, and Christine Sabga.The cookbook features a smorgasbord of delightful recipes on popular dishes like lamb kebabs, fatoush, tabouli, and baklava—dishes that are enjoyed across Trinidad and Tobago.”
