Green Gold – The Story of Lebanese Olive Oil is a high-quality coffee table book recounting the history, traditions and customs attached to olive oil production and consumption, accompanied by typical Lebanese recipes.

It is a fascinating account of sustainable development and a personal narrative of discovery and deep affection. Join the writer on her journey to the traditional olive groves carpeting Lebanon’s countryside and meet the producers who have been pruning, picking, and pressing olives for generations. Learn why each region in Lebanon produces a uniquely tasting olive oil and how the production of olives is intimately linked to the rhythm of the seasons. Find out more about ancient myths and legends. Discover how you can use olive oil and olive oil soap in your beauty routine. Enjoy striking photos of gnarled tree trunks, verdant hills, flower covered olive groves and weather worn faces of men and women who work in the fields.

The health benefits of olive oil are internationally acknowledged. Doctors and nutritionists encourage us to eat more in our diet. It can’t be a coincidence that many of the inhabitants of Lebanon’s mountain villages, who consume a daily dose of olive oil, live to a great age. Harness some of the life-giving energy by cooking typical Lebanese cuisine based on olive oil. Learn to make delicious salads, dips, traditional starters (mezzé), meat and vegetable stews and barbequed chicken by following simple step-by-step recipes, accompanied by mouthwatering photos.
