Egypt and food


A staple of Egyptian cuisine is Ful Medames, which is a dish of cooked fava beans served with olive oil and familiar spices such as cumin – which is perhaps the most commonly used spice in Egypt. Ful Medames is generally always eaten with bread – whether on the side or as a sandwich. You’ll find the cuisine in Egypt shares many similarities with other Eastern Mediterranean cuisines, with a heavy use of rice, a diverse array of vegetables, meze, salads, and a variety of kebabs and kofta available. Egyptian cuisine is perfect for vegetarians as there’s just so many vegetarian dishes to choose from, although along the coast and in cities such as Alexandria you’ll also note a heavier reliance on seafood.
