This course was inspired by the intersection of two popular trends. On one hand, there's the culture of sharing plates and bites from a common dish, and on the other, the demand for a vegan lifestyle and diet. However, this meeting isn't forced: in the eastern Mediterranean region, in today's Middle East, there is a centuries-old tradition of eating "vegan and bite-sized." In fact, it would be harder to find something that isn't fresh and vegetable-based. For our feast today, we've prepared salads, dips, and fantastic one-pot dishes: reimagining a couple of classics and introducing dishes that are less familiar here. Be our guests on a truly rich meze journey, from Israel to Lebanon, through Syria, all the way to Jordan.
