MiddleEastern Food: Project
The Middle East, intended here in its broad sense, including the Arab world, Israel, Turkey and Iran, is a very important region for the economic stability and peace of the world. Many of these countries have some common culinary traditions, probably due mainly to their common ethnicity and culture, although some might have their unique dishes. Despite the fact that the preparation and consumption of food in these countries might be greatly affected by religion, nevertheless, there are a number of dishes that are much appreciated across the ethnic and religious differentiations. For instance, the olive oil is equally highly valued by the three Abrahamic faiths, namely, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Here are some beautiful Middle Eastern food images that might tell people all over the world something about the culture of a region, on which the attention of the world seems focused. The people of the Middle East may have different religious, ethnic and language backgrounds, but, in spite of that, the traditional foods of their various communities may have more in common than one might otherwise have expected. The lack of very big differences between the cuisine habits of the various people of the region might be partly due to the shared common food products of the region.
