Not many know, but a few decades ago Arabian Gulf cuisine was dominated by simple Bedouin and pearl diver dishes. Fish with rice, is very popular, as is harees--boiled, cracked, or coarsely-ground wheat, mixed with meat. Saffrom and nuts make an appearance in most dishes, and a constant year-round staple is the highly nutritious date that accompanies most meals. Coffee is also an after-meal accompaniment. Arabic cuisine cannot be separated from traditions, which are centered around hospitability and strive to ensure that visitors always feast in comfort.
