Summary Food Safari explores the food of Syria - one of the most vibrant cuisines of the Middle East, full of herbs, spices and traditions stretching back many generations. Maeve gets an explanation of the essential ingredients to make traditional dishes and is taken through the classic mezza spread and the custom of eating a generous variety of small dishes, and how to make a classic salad called fattoush. We see how the traditional saj or mountain bread is made and visit a traditional cheesemaker who makes the beloved yoghurt-based cheese called shanklish. The national dish of kibbeh - a finely minced meat mixed with burghul and seasoned with spices and served fried, baked or raw is served and finally a golden baklava baked with pistachio nuts and rosewater syrup.
