    Lebanese cuisine is a set of dishes and culinary customs of the inhabitants of Lebanon . This cuisine is extraordinarily diverse and has its own specialties adapted from the different countries around it. With fresh and tasty food, the Lebanese have adapted the best of Turkish and Arabic cuisine, giving it a French flavor. Ingredients Traditional Lebanese cuisine combines an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables . The basis of the dishes is solely the use of cereals and vegetables , and the same ingredients can be repeated in many dishes, but with different preparation methods. Yogurts , cheeses , cucumbers , aubergines , peas , nuts , tomatoes and sesame are used in all their forms: seed , paste or olive oil . Vegetable oils are also used, including olive oil to fry some foods, often using butter ( smen ). Lebanese dishes Tabbouli Mezze accompanied by arak , which is the Lebanese national drink , is very popular.
