Beirut Cooking Festival

What better way to start a blog than with a cooking event? 

Yesterday was day one of the 3 day cooking festival in Beirut. Eager me dragged my mom and sister and set off to join in on the fun.

It has it all, from the traditional Lebanese delicacies, to international cuisine; including French, Japanese, and much more, wines, celebrity chefs and a huge range of equipment to shop for.

All in all it was one delightful experience, I would’ve loved to stay for the whole day but I had classes so I missed some really fun events! 

I got day 3 to go to still .. so let the fun continue 😀
