levantese rising

hi there, we are back :-)
begining of the week we are starting with a levantese feast, I will prepare some crunchy falafel, served with salad, baba ganoush and crispy pitta bread. All the ingridients and dishes of today are associated with Levant, historical name for the countries of West Asia, including todays Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, and southern Turkey. Levant comes from latin, meaning rising, describing the countries where the sun rises, oposite to term Maghreb, describing the countries where the sun goes down, used for countries of West Africa. World used to be so small :-)
