Suggestions for UNIFIL Menu. Recipe 1: Spaghetti with Tahini
Does anyone notice how slow the UN and EU are in their actions? I mean it took them 33 days to reach a cease-fire that could have been reached in 1 week. And now it is taking ages to deploy peacekeepers.
A friend of mine reflected that ‘it is the food stupid!’. Europeans want to make sure their soldiers are well-fed. So, I decided to start a series of menu suggestions that mix local and European recipes. Sahtein!
