Lebanese features on The World Cup of Food:

Taiwanese food is a mixture of various regional Chinese cuisines with a little bit of Japanese sprinkled in here and there.  Perhaps it is best summarized by one traveler we know as “Chinese food with more seafood.”  The result is both delicious and interesting.

Regional differences aside, Lebanese food is the foundation on which many aspects of Greek, Turkish, Arabian, and North African cuisines are based.  Chances are you’ve eaten Lebanese food with out even realizing it, for example the last time you tried hummus or baba ghanouj.  Lemons, olive oil, garlic, and mint give a distinctive flavor to Lebanese cuisine, and a battery of available ingredients give variety.

We thought not very long and not very hard, and have decided that the lucky winner in this week’s final qualifying round match between Taiwan and Lebanon is…

…Lebanon!  Lebanon awaits the winner of the match between Switzerland and Hungary in the round of thirty-two.
