Every Spring there is a Middle Eastern food fair at a little church close to my house. I started going to this food fair with my mom and dad while I was in college. I think it was the beginning of my never ending love affair with Middle Eastern food. I could eat hummus on a piece of old leather with no problem!
The food fair includes delicious savory treats like chicken schwarma and falafel. But often the real highlight of the fair are the tables of sweet treats that all the cute little Middle Eastern church ladies must spend weeks making!
My dad and I just went to the food fair last week. It was so good I ate until I felt like I would POP! Hummus, schwarma, baklava, anise cookies. Mmmmmmm. . . .
