Mediterranean cuisine is exceptional because of its regional variations, its range of ingredients and its flexibility, which is a result of constant influence different nations had on each other. Some people claim it is one of the world’s healthiest, even calling it a diet. The most raised animals are sheep and goats, due to the fact that most of the terrain in these parts is perfect for these animals. Fish and seafood dishes are also widely spread and very popular. Olive oil and garlic are the most popular spices, and grilled meat, falafel, hummus and pita bread are most known it the eastern parts.
The Mediterranean can be divided into three culinary regions: South Europe(Italy, Spain France) which is best recognizable for its wines and herbs, North Africa(Morocco) which are flavored by spices, and eastern Mediterranean (Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Israel).

We’ve implemented the standard protocols to mitigate the risk of transmitting COVID-19 in our restaurants, like being very strict with mask wearing and sanitizing everything often. Require frequent employee handwashing (e.g. before, during, and after preparing food; after touching garbage) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and increase monitoring to ensure adherence.
Ensure adequate supplies to support healthy hygiene Supplies include soap, hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol (placed on every table, if supplies allow), paper towels, tissues, disinfectant wipes, masks(as feasible), and no-touch/foot pedal trash cans. Post signs in highly visible locations (e.g., at entrances, in restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures for both employees and customers and describe how to stop the spread of COVID- 19.
