Each Saturday of the Arabesque: Arts of the Arab World festival, this mini-immersion takes patrons on a culinary journey into the cultures of Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Yemen. Your journey begins at the Kennedy Center with a lecture about the land, the people, and the culture of each region.
