Syrian Cuisine

Known across the Middle East and North Africa, Syrian cuisine is widely recognized as one of the most elaborate, sophisticated, diverse, and expansive traditions in the region at large if not globally. Dating back at least to the 13th century, the cities of Damascus and Aleppo--two of the oldest and longest inhabited metropolises in the world--have been culinary capitals where travelers came from far and wide to hone their skills in the arts and sciences of perfecting a meal. Being a geographic crossroad between Europe, central Asia, Arabia, North Africa, South Asia, the Levant, and Mesopotamia (which Syria a part of) ensured that so many varying food traditions made their way through and left their mark. It was also on the merchant pathway of the silk road which brought with it unique spices and herbs, which explains the vast range of flavours that are characteristic of Syrian food today.

Another reason for Syrian cuisine's extraordinary brilliance is the unique combination of topography, landscape, and climates in the country. Whether it's lush forest, fertile valleys, snow-capped mountains or arid deserts, Syria is home to so many different agricultural environments that make it arable for a wide range of different crops. For hundreds of years, the Syrian countryside has been self-sufficient with produce that has enriched the cuisine with seasonal varieties and so many experimental options for vegetables and herbs. From eggplant, zucchini, molokhia, and chard to sour cherries, apples, mulberry, and figs, Syria's soil yields some of the most extraordinary vegetables and fruits across the region.
