On May 16, the hosts of Darb el Karam – food heritage trail in the Higher Shouf and West Bekaa gathered in Maasser el-Shouf and participated in a two-session training prepared and delivered by Dr. Jad Abou Arrage, expert in rural tourism and Ms. Zeinab Jeambey, food heritage management specialist.

While the part given by Dr. Abou Arrage focused on familiarizing the hosts of the food trail with the proposed touristic packages, the second part of the training aimed at highlighting the importance of locality and seasonality of the suggested menus.


This training is the last one in the preparatory phase of the project; it is expected to launch Darb el Karam packages this summer and give the visitors the opportunity of experiencing a new type of tourism.

Darb el Karam is developed through the collaboration between the Environment and Sustainable Development Unit at the American University of Beirut, the Food Heritage Foundation and the Shouf Biosphere Reserve with support of USAID through Lebanon Industry Value Chain Development – LIVCD Project.
