​​The Banquet of Old Times


The Convention, Catering and Special Events Class at the School of Tourism and Hotel Management at the University of Balamand, organized its Annual Theme Dinner on Friday May 31, 2013 at 8:00 p.m in front of the Ethnographic museum.

The aim of this project is to provide an opportunity for students to practice in an authentic event project situation. In addition, the project is large and complex enough to constitute a true challenge and necessitate efficient management of available resources in terms of knowledge, manpower and budget. 

Every year the event exhibits a specific theme.  This year the students selected the Lebanese traditions theme and the title of the event was “The Banquet of Old Times” which is so-called after the book that was published by the School. 

Managers from five-star international hotels, restaurants and different educational institutions were invited to this occasion. 
The banquet constituted of a set of traditional recipes that are simple and yet creative and they can easily become a thing of the forgotten past.  In addition, many craftsmen such as Khan Al Saboun, Khan Al Nehaseen, and clay sculptor participated in the event to treasure and promote the authentic Lebanese culture epitomized by our ancestors.

The event was very successful and what really exceeded the guests’ expectations were the “daa” ice cream exhibited by Abdel Rahman Hallab, the “tannour” and the traditional roasting of lamb on open fire.
