Shouf Biosphere Reserve

Zaatar...That indispensable item in the list of Darouriyet and the #1 smuggled food across the world! How can we not have it in this box?

The one we carefully chose for you this month is the delicious zaatar from the Shouf Biosphere Reserve. It is different from any other and has a unique taste. It's not the classic zaatar you find everywhere.

Since 1996, the Shouf Cedar Society protects the area and runs activities such as guided hikes, trekking, and eco-tourism trips. In 2005, the area received the status of a protected Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It is the largest natural cedar reserve in the country.

Found in the "Darouriyet" box: a jar of fresh Zaatar
