Here what others have to say

‘While news from the Middle East isn’t always shown in a positive light, I was introduced to true Lebanon & the important characteristics which make it a thriving & family-orientatied country & how food is the common bind & catalyst for celebration. Bethany is clearly passionate about Lebanon & showing the country to the world. I was shown olive oil production, Lebanese vineyards & the process of growing & harvesting za’atar to the nightlife & beating heart of the Beirut party scene. ‘ - David J Constable, Journalist UK June 2012 Journey

‘Notable highlights include dinner in Batroun & lunch at BouBouffe & LaLa’s Chicken, which were all made even more enticing by the fact that there really was a sense of not having come across them had I been visiting on my own. it was great meeting Abu Qassam & his wife (as was learning how to harvest za’atar), & it’s that personal touch, meeting small, local producers that really made the trip so special. Of course, being with great people & the odd bit of glamour on a rooftop bar certainly helps.’ - Dave Drummon, Eat Me Magazine, UK June 2012

‘Having never been to Lebanon before, it was an eye-opening experience. Bethany’s desire to show the real Lebanon, its people and its food has enabled us to discover a new land of hope and delicatesse, where spices and smells fill the warm air. ‘- Elsa Buchanan, UK June 2012 Journey
