My son refers to Abu Dhabi as the ‘Tabbouleh Grand Prix’. Unusually for a five year old, Tabbouleh is his ultimate dish which we generally have once a week. For those not in the know Tabbouleh is a ‘salad’ made of bulgur wheat, onion, lemon juice, olive oil, tomatoes and herbs which originates from Lebanon but is served all over the Middle East. It is generally served as part of the mezze course although we often have ours with our mains. I also adore tabbouleh (and I don’t like tomatoes!).

Tabbouleh is one of those dishes that everyone has their own version of, mine comes from a cookbook that my sister gave me years ago called Falling Cloudberries but we have adapted it slightly to suit our tastes
