VPR Cafe: A Lebanese Feast In Barre

The Lebanese community in Barre has maintained a thirty year old tradition of an annual dinner. This past November, two hundred people gathered at the Elk's Club to enjoy the food, music and dancing of their homeland. Melissa Passanen, who writes for the Savorvore Section of The Burlington Free Press, sampled the specialties served at the dinner and she shares her reflections on this special community event. You can learn more about the history of this annual Lebanese feast in Melissa's Free Press article, where you will also find a recipe for Lubia Bi Lahum (Green Bean Stew with Beef).

If you are interested in being invited to the dinner this year, email lizberini@myfairpoint.net

The VPR Cafe is produced in collaboration with The Burlington Free Press and is made possible on VPR by City Market in Burlington.
