ABOUT OUR LADY OF LEBANON
Our Lady of Lebanon is a Lebanese-Maronite church dedicated to promoting an understanding of the Lebanese culture and the Maronite faith.
Some of the dishes being served:
The vertical grill is a typical Middle Eastern barbecue.
Thin layers of beef, chicken or lamb are placed on the skewer, seasoned, and slowly rotates in front of an electric element. The juices continue to keep the meat moistened.
As the outside cooks, it is shaved off, placed into a pita bread and is combined with lettuce, tomato, and seasoned with a tahini sauce.
The Greek people call this gyro.
