With the start of the New Year upon us, I have some super exciting news to share! The Taste Lebanon #FoodTrek giveaway of an all expenses paid 8-night holiday to discover the food, culture and history of Lebanon now includes free flights with gratitude to the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism.
This remarkable #FoodTrek giveaway also includes the complimentary five star luxury accommodation generously offered by the iconic Phoenicia Hotel, nestled in the vibrant downtown district along with all expenses including food, wine and on the ground transportation. If you entered the primary food trek giveaway then your entry will be automatically carried over and is still valid.
The #FoodTrek giveaway is a unique opportunity to see the country at its most raw and genuine, taking in both its extraordinary beauty and zeal for life. I will take guests the length and breadth of this tiny country, positioned between the glistening Mediterranean and the exotic charm of the Middle East. Through the tour, your eyes will be opened to numerous different sides of the country that are rarely mentioned in the Western media, as you experience the warming embrace of Lebanese hospitality. As I escort you around the country, I will take you to places that even many locals won’t know, as I impart my love of Lebanese culture and, of course, its cuisine.
In the heaving metropolis of Beirut, I’ll take you to experience both up-market bistros and traditional kebab shops. Meanwhile, up the coast in the picturesque resort of Batroun, fresh fish will be served up almost straight from the sea below. In a country of contrasts, the mountains offer a chance to see a simpler side to life, as we cook up traditional Lebanese fare in a land where the Bedouins also roam. While our visits to the far north and south will give you the opportunity to see very different sides of Lebanese agriculture, from olive oil made with state of the art machinery to wild za’atar, harvested by hand.
If you want to discover a different perspective to this often-misunderstood country, then make sure you enter the giveaway today. This is an unmissable chance to have your eyes open to a whole new world. Whether you’re a blogger, a journalist, or just wanting to come along for the ride, the competition is now open to all.
