The Arabic cuisine is an important part of Arabic culture and it represents the Arab way of life.

Food in the Middle East and especially in Damascus, has a great diversity of taste and fragrance in order to provide the bestenjoyment of those who eat it.

All the older Arabic houses would have wonderful inside gardens where the whole family would gather and enjoy together their meals and at the same time relax amongst the beautiful and original Damascus roses, the lemon trees and a wide variety of other plants and flowers in the garden.

Another basic element in the center of the garden would have been the water fountain that with the tinkling of its cascading water would accompany and complete the traditional Arabic music that was often played during that time.

The array of different colors along with traditional music and above all, the fragrances of flowers and various spices combined, would transport each participant of the feast in a world of pleasure tending to all their senses.

The traditional “nargile” and tea were important factors as well, for digestion and relaxation after the meal was over.
