Oriental style brick with Le Gruyère AOP

60' 20'

Oriental cuisine is an integral part of my life!  Not because I lived in Lebanon, but because our entire gastronomic culture came to us by different routes, which directly influenced our culinary customs and habits.

These fragrant and even bewitching nuances from Asia and elsewhere came to us to embellish our gastronomy and our culture of life.

Baalbek was a fabulous gateway to this knowledge of which we were unaware.

Once in Europe, spices allowed us to discover new senses and thus played an important role in the development of our modern society.
