In addition to their nutritional importance, traditional food recipes based on ancestral knowledge are a cultural treasure, and deserve preservation. Such are the recipes contained in this book, which was generated in the course of a project entitled, Wild Edible Plants: Promoting Dietary Diversity in Poor Communities of Lebanon, conducted by AUB's Department of Nutrition and Food Science; the Environment and Sustainable Development Unit (ESDU) of AUB's Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences; and IBSAR (the Initiative for Diodiversity Studies in Arid Regions), AUB's interfaculty nature conservation center for sustainable futures. The project was funded by the International Development Research Center (IDRC).
