With food safety being a topic du jour in Lebanon and food insecurity threatening the Arab region in light of ongoing turmoil, a conference of food and food production is well-timed. Between Jan.14 and 17, the Orient-Institut Beirut and the Goethe-Institut held their international forum Food Fabrication in Beirut taking a look at food heritage, food culture and food politics in the region. The latter was highlighted on the opening night of the forum, at the Goethe-Institut in Gemmayzeh, with a presentation of the "Food for Thought" photo exhibition by photographer Marwan Tahtah, whose work explored Lebanese food traditions in a variety of contexts.Tahtah said that while the topic of food was a very vast one, his aim was to identify the differences between rural and urban food traditions in Lebanon.
