Brief Background to Egyptian Cuisine
Egyptian cuisine is a diverse and delicious blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavours, heavily influenced by the country's rich history, and its position as a crossroads between Africa and the Levant. It is known for its variety of dishes made using fresh ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, grains, meats and fish.
Staple foods in Egypt include bread, rice and beans, which are often served with various toppings or used as ingredients in other dishes. Popular meats used in traditional Egyptian food include beef, lamb, and chicken - favourite ways of cooking are often grilling or roasting. Fish and seafood are also common, particularly in the coastal regions, and are served in a variety of ways by grilling, frying, or adding to stews. Fruits and vegetables play a large role in Egyptian cuisine too, with dishes like kushari (a mixture of lentils, rice, and pasta) and stuffed vegetables being popular choices. Egyptian cuisine frequently uses herbs and spices like cumin, coriander, and parsley to add flavour to dishes.
