Book your authentic Lebanese brunch in Paris

An authentic, healthy and immersive culinary experience. With this Lebanese brunch typical of the Land of the Cedars, we want to take you on a journey through our Levantine morning memories. Brunch is served by reservation only on Saturday and Sunday at the Libshop in Paris 13. Price: €29 / person. In addition to its authentic aspect, this brunch is inspired by the standards of the Mediterranean diet, considered by science to be one of the most effective dietary methods in the world for health and longevity. In practice, we have worked on a predominantly vegetarian diet, a supply of legumes rich in vegetable proteins, raw products, and the use of healthy and natural aromatics. On the menu, an assortment of mezzes with Lebanese tzatziki-style labneh made from curdled and drained milk, cucumber and mint, a delicious pizzette of Lebanese Zaatar, this famous blend of spices (thyme, rosemary, savory, oregano, etc…), as well as a delicious halloumi cheese. Next come the authentic legume dishes served early in the morning in Lebanon, namely Foul Moudammas and Balila salad. These two tangy dishes are the keystone of the typical Lebanese breakfast, followed by the ancestral “Lebanese-style” omelette with parsley and onion, served with

Health and nutrition: discover the nutritional treasure of nuts

Did you know ? Nuts such as walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds are nutritional treasures. As long as you consume them in moderation, and as a replacement for sugary snacks and other bars rich in refined cereals. Dried oilseed fruits are very good sources of fats Oilseeds, and especially nuts, have a preponderant place in the Cretan diet, which is one of the healthiest eating habits in the world, and to which we devote a separate section in the Libshop blog. Like olive oil, another superfood, nuts are very good suppliers of fatty acids, particularly omega-9, and sometimes omega-3. Omega-9 prevents cardiovascular disease by having a beneficial effect on cholesterol, reduces blood pressure, regulates blood sugar and is beneficial for the nervous system. Omega-3, which we need in small quantities, helps prevent degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer's, helps protect the immune system, fights insulin resistance, and has positive effects on the cardiovascular system. , while being anti-inflammatory, thus helping to fight against tendinitis,

Fassolia, or one of the best Lebanese dishes

I don't know if you remember the final scene of the movie Ratatouille. Alfredo Linguini, helped by the little rat Rémy, serves ratatouille to the culinary critic Anton Ego, an austere character who is difficult to please. The chosen dish, unexpected to say the least, unexpectedly amazed the critic who dropped his fork and gave the restaurant 5 stars. Indeed, this “family” dish awakened his childish soul in him, in a Proust madeleine plunging him back into his distant memories, when his mother served him ratatouille. Fassolia is a bit like that for every Lebanese in us, whether through the memories it carries – a dish imposed by our mothers who forced us to finish it, while we dreamed of nuggets and fries – or by the food composition, namely a peasant stew with a thousand and one nutritional virtues. White beans simmered in a tasty tomato sauce with spices, garlic, basmati rice, and a portion of fatty meat, this is a comforting dish typical of the "Blue Zones", these areas where life expectancy in good health beats

Health and waistline: discover the superpowers of legumes

Legumes, also called pulses, are foods that are unfortunately little known and little consumed in “modern” industrial diets. However, they are a treasure trove of nutrition. Legumes are vegetable plants whose fruit is a pod, and which are cultivated in order to obtain dry edible grains. Among the best known, we find chickpeas, broad beans, red and white beans and even lentils. These are ancestral plants, originating from the Mediterranean for some, and from Asia for others. Moreover, most ancestral peoples have adopted them in cooking in the four corners of the world, from Mediterranean hummus (made from chickpeas) to the traditional English breakfast (white beans in sauce) through Indian dal (peas or lentils). Even if they are a little tedious to cook, more in any case than rice or potatoes, they have two major advantages: their delicious taste when used correctly in cooking, and their health benefits. This is the second point we will address here. And there are many reasons why legumes are good for your health. Their richness in fiber stabilizes blood sugar levels Thanks to their
