Mazzah refer to Hors d'oeuvre or appteizers in Arabic, such as stuffed grape leaves, hummus, baba ghannuj, pickled turnips, olives and raw kubbah. Lebanese are famous in the Middle East with their "Mazzah" small dishes, which are served before the main dish. Lebanese use a lot of fresh fruits, vegetables and olive oil in their cuisine. Because of the harsh winter weather in the mountainous areas, villagers are used to preserving a lot of their food. They managed to pickle everything from cucumbers, cauliflower to grape leaves. They make fruit leathers of apricot, figs, peaches and apples and preserve cheeses and make syrups.
