TASTE LEBANON – WHAT IT BRINGS TO THE TABLE
Founded in 2009, by Middle Eastern food expert Bethany Kehdy, Taste Lebanon is a pioneer in culinary and rural tourism in Lebanon and offers the ultimate in culinary and cultural packages, designed for people who love and appreciate Lebanese food and who are looking for a truly authentic and intimate experience.
Taste Lebanon is driven by a deep-rooted appreciation for Lebanon; its rich culinary reportoire, countryside, and under-appreciated rural areas and is very much influenced by Bethany’s childhood spent on her family’s dairy farm in the village of Baskinta.
We pride ourselves on providing rare opportunities for our guests to meet with locals and break bread with the invaluable guardians of our rich culinary heritage in their homes across the country, while they learn the authentic techniques and stories behind each producer’s culinary specialities.
And, so, our focus at Taste Lebanon is to enrich each of our guests with unique experiences they would not otherwise gain as they travel on their own whilst also raising awareness amongst tourists and Lebanese about the origins of ingredients and culinary processes and traditions all the while encouraging the host’s continued sense of pride and ownership of their trade.
Revolving around Lebanon’s four seasons, guests are encouraged to join in the local harvests, canning, preserving or mouneh making, cooking with villagers and producers in their kitchens, and gaining insights into traditional cooking methods meanwhile helping them “put more food on their table”.
Taste Lebanon offers 5-7-day Food Treks, 1-3 day Rural Escapes, and 1-day Beirut Bites tours, as well as a la carte options including 1-3 day Wine Wanders, 2 -3 day Food & Fitness Retreats, 1-3 day Sacred Retreats, 1-day Buzz with the Bees and Cooking Workshops for adults and children and anything in between. We’ve also tailored many a honeymoon, birthday and corporate team building experience, too.
By using our services, you benefit from our expertise and access to wonderful and lesser-known locations, an authentic and fully tailored experience as well as a strong five-year track record; welcoming locals, visitors and media from across the world
