These “Arab pizzas” probably date back to the fifteenth century and would have appeared in the region of the Beqaa Valley in Eastern Lebanon close to the Syrian border, the capital of which is Baalbek. An Iraqi family named Haidar is at the origin of the recipe.
Over thirty different foods pictured in original, full-color illustrations decorate this poster which will look great on your classroom wall, or as a cover page for a unit study on food names in Arabic. It is a wonderful study tool, accompanying our other fun Arabic Food printables. The Arabic name of each food is placed beside each illustration in clear, easy-to-read Lateef font.
Quipes or Kipes (Deep fried bulgur roll) - I've been looking for these forever! My Mexican mom only said their name once. She said it was Arab food (it was take-out) but it looks like it's a traditional Dominican food.
Künefe or kanafeh or kunafeh or kunafah or ... I don't know any other names of it.. But basically it's sweet pastry made from wiry kadaif filled/ layered with unsalty soft cheese and soaked in sugar syrup. Served hot or room temperature. Künefe is popular from Turkey and from some Mediterranean countries (as a former Ottoman Empire). #kunefe #kunafah #kunafeh #telkadayif #turkishsweets #turkishdessert #turkishfood #mediterranean #turkishdelight
