The cuisine of the Arab world isn’t one of the most diverse in the world but it definitely does have a lot of tasty dishes to offer. As with any culture, there are certain regional differences that influence the different kinds of food that people eat, however these variations aren’t exactly set in stone. However there are a few things that generally hold true of Arabic food. There is generally quite an emphasis on yoghurt products and lamb or chicken are the two main meats which are eaten.

Can’t beat homemade

A Broad At Home

This past Sunday I sharpened my domestic knife and got to work making homemade chicken stock. I’ve seen dozens of recipes before but never taken the time to really put it together. This recipe from Bon Appetit could not have been simpler. I added four crushed cloves of garlic (skin on) and a handful of thyme, otherwise I stayed true to the recipe.

وقتی که شاهد رنج دیگرانی و خم به ابرو نمی اوری
وقت انست که پرسش کنی
وقتی که شاهد قسا وت و بیرحمی هستی و لبخند می زنی
وقت انست که پرسش کنی
وقتی که بی گناهان معلول و کشته میشونی و این را مقا بله می خوانی

وقتی که تو مسبب جنگ می شوی و دیگران را تروریست می نامی
