My friend brought me the best gift ever from MI–a huge bag of sumac (I can’t find it anywhere here). Since it’s HUGE, I figured I better get to using some of it, so I made fattoush. I topped it with some grilled chicken. Mmm!
I’m from an area in Michigan that boasts the second largest Arabic population in the world (outside of the Middle East), so I am used to being able to get good quality, delicious, authentic Lebanese food whenever I want it. There are some good Lebanese places in Chicago but so far, none that match the restaurants from my hometown–or my friend’s parents’ cooking, of course. :)
