Hi Ganesh. Chicken Tabouli Salad is not a Spanish Dish. Tabouli also spelled Tabbouleh/ Tabouleh/Tabouli/Tabulleh/ Taboley is a Midditeranean or more specifically a Lebanese salad side-dish.

Thanks a lot Snigdha , for correcting me. But what is the major differences between Spanish Cuisine and Mediterranean Cuisine? I always confused between them. Can you help me in this regard?

Geographically countries that share the Mediterranean Sea or rather are bordered by this Sea boast of a Mediterranean Cuisine. Spanish Cuisine and Lebanese Cuisine both fall under the category of Mediterranean cuisine but both have their own unique differences owing to the culture and tastes of their respective countries. A Number of Cuisines are broadly classified under the the Mediterranean Cuisine such as: Greek Cuisine Cyprus Cuisine Moroccan Cuisine Portuguese Cuisine Maltese Cuisine Spanish Cuisine Bulgarian Cuisine Egyptian Cuisine Lebanese Cuisine Turkish Cuisine Israeli Cuisine Hence in your blog, though Paella belongs to Spanish Cuisine and Tabouli belongs to the Lebanese Cuisine, they both broadly fall under the Category of Mediterranean Cuisine and 'Mediterranean Lunch Menu' would have been a more apt name as you could name dishes from any of the above Cuisines.

Bulgarian cuisine is more Balkan or Slavic of Southeastern Europe. It is influenced by Serbian, Russian, Turkish, Greek and Middle Eastern countries. It has a realively moderate climate and grows great grapes for wine and has many diary products like the Kaskhaval cheese I mentioned recently. Vegetables are always on the table and a salad is a must. There are local alcoholic drinks such as rakia, mastika and menta. Bulgarian cuisine features also a variety of hot and cold soups, an example of a cold soup being tarator. There are many different Bulgarian pastries as well such as banitsa. Turkish cuisine is usually considered Middle Easterm, as is Moroccan, Lebanese, Syrian, etc.----- confused yet? The Mediterrean is an inland sea bordered on the north by Europe, the east by Asia, and in the south by Africa. This 969,100 sq. mile body of water is approximately 2,300 miles in length, and has a maximum depth of 16,896 ft. Major subdivisions include the Adriatic Sea, Aegean Sea, Balearic Sea, Tyrrhenian Sea, Ionian Sea and Ligurian Sea. It is these subdivisions that help make it cloudy as to what is Mediterrean. The good thing is the cuisines of the entire area are wonderful. Medietrrean includes Riveria of France, Monaco, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Libya, Algeria, Israel, Syria, Portugal, San Marino, Serbia, and the Vatican City, although they do not border the sea, are often considered Mediterranean countries in a wider sense due to their Mediterranean climate, fauna and flora, and their cultural affinity with other Mediterranean countries. Confusing for sure. Also Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, Serbia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republic of Macedonia, and the European part of Turkey-remember it is both in Europe and Asia. Sometimes Moldova, Romania, and Slovenia re considered Balkan. Med. map for reference Many times Middle Eastern and Mediterrean cuisines get confused and no wonder-same ingredients and some are ME and Med. both. Shanti/Mary-Anne
Snigdha's picture head is spinning a little but I think the synopsis would be that a whole lot of Countries bordered by the Med Sea and some of those that are not fall under the category of Med cuisine.

something like that. Certainly confusing between the categories of Mediterrean and Middle Eastern-a big overlap. Hey both are great on flavour and in most cases healthy! Shanti/Mary-Anne
