Can it be possible that "The Taste" is only just coming to the Middle East, a place where food isn't just something you eat, but a daily way of life?Anissa Helou, the 62-year-old giant of Middle Eastern cuisine, has arguably done more to introduce the rest of the world to Levant food than anyone else in her field, and her cookbooks have won multiple awards. Distinguished by her shock of gray and white hair, she grew up in Lebanon with her Syrian father and Lebanese mother before leaving just before the Civil War, and has since become a household name for chefs and food-lovers alike. Bethany Kehdy, a 30-something U.S.-Lebanese "home cook," may not be as well-known as Helou, but she is part of the contemporary vanguard of Middle Eastern food culture. She runs the popular Dirty Kitchen Secrets food blog, an international conference called Food Blogger Connect and Taste Lebanon, which organizes gourmet culinary tours of the country. At the end of the day, it's about the food and all else surrenders to the taste".
