THE BOISDALE FOOD AND WINE TRIP TO LEBANON IN ASSOCIATION WITH MARK SHELTON

WEDNESDAY 18TH OCTOBER - SUNDAY 22ND OCTOBER 2017

Lebanon is an eastern Mediterranean country the size of Wales, and while the Francophone nation
maybe small on the global map, like the Tardis, it’s much bigger on the inside. The capital, Beirut, even
during times of unrest, has always attracted visitors drawn by its intrigue, glamour and passion.
They come for the nightlife, the beach clubs, the boutiques, restaurants and bars and clubs that never
shut. Lebanon is a feast for the sensations, a country of the sea and the mountains, which straddles East
and West and yet never allows itself to be defined by either.
This first Boisdale Trip to Lebanon, co-hosted by award-winning Lebanese wine writer, Michael Karam
will take in Lebanon’s culinary heritage; its burgeoning wine culture and the Beirut’s vibrant and
exhilarating lifestyle. Oh and the by the way, the Lebanese smoke more Cuban cigars per capita than any
other nation.
