Lebanese National Tabbouleh Day is a yearly festivity day dedicated to Tabbouleh. Since 2001, it is celebrated the first Saturday of the month of July. On this day, both Lebanese and non-Lebanese alike, all over the world meet in their homes or in public around this traditional Lebanese dish. It’s a cultural, gastronomic and touristic feast related to humanity and peace in Lebanon and in the world.
The Tabbouleh is considered a « unifying » dish, in a country like Lebanon torn by tensions, and as a « symbolic » dish by the diversity of its ingredients – representative of the Lebanese population. As such, this delicate harmony is compromised anytime one of its components is discarded or neglected.
