Book segment and carrot soup recipe on Helwi Beirut’s episode 33!

Hi all!

In our show today, we welcomed many guests and featured some interesting reports. Our main guests were Hiba Tawaji and Wadih Abi Raad who promoted their upcoming concert together being held on the 12 and 13 of November at Palais Des Congres.

During our weekly book segment, Rachel Khalil Halik talked about the book “The Mother-In-Law Dance” by author Annie Chapman. Rachel explained that the major question asked in the book is can two women in love with the same man remain on good terms? Of course they can if they follow some rules. The book states that the mother-in-law should respect her limits, not criticize her daughter-in-law, not be controlling, not interfering, give brief and kind advice only when asked, never be judgmental, and be encouraging and positive. On the other side the daughter-in-law should be active, never give silent treatment, never use the mother-in-law as a baby sitter, never forget familial obligations, never speak badly of in laws or husband, love her husband and appreciate her mother-in-law for raising her husband.

One report we featured on the show today gave us the top 5 cooking websites. Check them out below!

Every Friday Chef Ramzi prepares a different dish!

Last week, Chef Ramzi prepared some delicious cupcakes. Today, he moved away from deserts and prepared carrot soup with pumpkin kibbeh. Sounds appetizing!

2 cups steamed carrots

2 cups liquid cream

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup grated mozzarella

½ cup finely chopped parsley

6 grilled or fried pumpkin kibbeh

Hope you enjoyed our show today!

Have a nice weekend and see you back on Monday with another interesting episode of Helwi Beirut.
