Big news: visiting Lebanon, Fall 2014!

I am traveling to Lebanon for the first time in 16 years since I took mama there in 1998, for her first return to her homeland since she immigrated with her mother and brothers at age 16 in 1926 reuniting with her father in Detroit, Michigan. The photo on the cover of Alice’s Kitchen is mama and her mother, Dalal in 1926 when they came to America. Inshallah I will be in Lebanon for a month, when the grapes and figs are in season, and visiting our family village of Douma, Batroun!

Photos on the right were taken on the trip in 1998.
For photos of my upcoming trip, check my blog (link to blog) or my Facebook pages; here’s a link to my Facebook cookbook page!
