Assyrian Cuisine and Recipes

Assyrian cuisine is similar to other Middle Eastern cuisines. It is rich in grains, meat, tomato, and potato. Rice is usually served with every meal accompanied by a stew which is typically poured over the rice. Tea is typically consumed at all times of the day with or without meals alone or as a social drink. Cheese, crackers, biscuits, baklawa, or other snacks are often served alongside the tea as appetisers. Dietary restrictions may apply during special holidays in which certain types of foods may not be consumed; often meaning animal-derived.
