Egyptian cuisine

Egyptian cuisine makes heavy use of legumes, vegetables, and fruit from Egypt’s rich Nile Valley and Delta. It shares similarities with the food of the Eastern Mediterranean region, such as rice-stuffed vegetables, grape leaves, shawarma, kebab, and kofta. Examples of Egyptian dishes include ful medames, mashed fava beans; kushari, lentils, and pasta; and molokhia, bush okra stew. Pita bread, known locally as eish Baladi.

Common meats in Egyptian cuisine are pigeon, chicken, and lamb. Lamb and beef are frequently used for grilling. Offal is a popular fast food in cities, and foie gras is a delicacy that has been prepared in the region since at least 2500 BCE. Fish and seafood are common in Egypt’s coastal regions. A significant amount of Egyptian cuisine is vegetarian, due to both the historically high price of meat and the needs of the Coptic Christian community, whose religious restrictions require essentially vegan diets for much of the year.

Popular desserts in Egypt include baqlawa, basbousa, and kunafa. Common ingredients in desserts include dates, honey, and almonds. Tea and coffee are the most national drinks in Egypt.
