Lebanese Bread

Literally not a meal is eaten in Lebanon that does not include bread. It is seasoned with zahtar (thyme-sumac seasoning) and olive oil for breakfast, and utilized both as a foodstuff and eating utensil for virtually every meal or snack. Bread is regarded so highly in the Middle East that in some Arabic dialects it is often referred to as "esh," meaning life. In an area of the world that is steeped in biblical history it is easy to remember that in the Christian church bread symbolizes the body of Christ. Most lebanese breads are flat breads of some variety.
