When you’re living in a foreign country, it’s very important not to be nostalgic. Constantly living in the same culture and background that you were living in before will keep you attached to your home country, keep you missing it more day after day, and eventually probably fall into depression (at least I know this is what would happen to me if I missed my home that much).

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you should forget all about your past and origins, of course not. I’m just saying that you should try and mingle or experience the new culture the country you’re living in now is giving you; after all mixing both might give you even greater satisfaction.

The cultural melting pot is what we’ve been trying to do ever since we came here, mainly in our cooking: either by preparing Lebanese meals with french ingredients, or by cooking a different meal from each country every other day. Like for example this week, yesterday we had a wonderful Fattoush salad, and today we had a typical french lunch: steak and fries!

Fattoush: Lebanon's forgotten salad

Steak and fries (with Moutarde de Dijon of course!)

What do you think of our mixture? 🙂

See you tomorrow!
