He is retired and grows fruits and vegetables in his garden in the outskirts of Beirut. Tania’s mother is a home chef who has been cooking traditional meals for the family all her life using family recipes. Most of the produce for the home comes from the garden and is local, fresh and organic! Her parents will be part of the experience and will help with the cooking and hosting.
