The Lebanese Food Festival; Cooking for a Cure 


Maybe you enjoy stuffing yourself with loubiyeh. Or you have a sweet tooth and only zalabia will do. Maybe a big slab of baked kibbi is your thing.

You probably have no idea what we're talking about. Well, we're not totally positive either, but we did visit last year's Lebanese Food Festival, and we're sure that this is a three-day event where you can hip yourself to some exotic smells and tastes from the Middle East, as well as a few words. The event returns for it's 17th year this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. at St. Anthony's Maronite Catholic Church in Glen Allen.

This festival always serves up a huge menu, with meat fests like the baked kibbi, as well as vegetarian favorites like falafel and bubbaghanooge.

Try it all at the event while enjoying the sights and sounds of Lebanese music and dancing. You can also order some take-out in small or bulk quantities.

If you're planning to make this a special Friday lunch for the office, remember that there are choices available for those less daring, like baked chicken and shish kabob. And we can all come together on the cheese pie, can't we? For information or to order, call 270-7234.

Pampered Chef consultant Margina Grow hosts Cooking for a Cure, one of the events taking place at the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation's open house Thursday. Look for door prizes, product demonstrations and new recipes, 6:30-8 p.m. at Dominion Short Pump. 12050 W. Broad St.
