The city's food and beverage offerings are a pesky subject to document as Beirut's hip – and foreigner-rich – neighborhoods come and go every two years, almost like clockwork.Cue Leonore and Olivia Dicker, two 20-something sisters born and bred in London, who spent the last year compiling a food guide to Beirut and beyond. Their self-published work, "The Food Guide: Beirut on a Plate," will hit branches of Librarie Antoine by the end of the week and is already available in a few of Gemmayzeh's hip hangouts like Ginette and Kitsch Boutique and Bakery. Q: How did two half-German, half-French sisters born in London come to be interested in Lebanese food?About two years ago I started working for Time Out magazine in Beirut and that's how I started to write about food and how I started to fall in love with Lebanese food.Q: If you were to return home, what food would you want to take with you?Q: From the book, is there a place outside Beirut where you would suggest making a trip specifically for its food?Q: During the writing process, did you learn to cook Lebanese food?A: The sushi restaurants aren't great in Beirut.Whether it's in Lebanon or somewhere else, I'll definitely be writing about food.
