EGYPT By:Sobhi Houri Introduction Egypt is located in the Northeastern region of the African continent, bordering both the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Seas. The Mediterranean may offer Egypt's northen up to eight inches of rainfall each year, and keeps year-round temperatures cooler than the inland deserts.The Nile River, The longest river in the world, runs north and south through eastern Egypt and empties into the mediterranean Sea. The Nile River Valley, which includes the capital city of Cairo, is the most fertile land in Egypt. Approxiamately 95 percent of the country's population lives along side the Nile River. However overcrowding in this region is threatening Egypt's wildlife and endangering the Nile's water supply. History Thousands of years ago, ancient Egyptians left evidence of their love for food. Well-preserved wall paintings and carvings have been discovered on tombs and temples, representing large feasts and a variety of foods. Many of these ancient foods are still eaten in Egypt today. Peas, beans, cucumber, dates, figs and grapes popular fruits and vegetables in ancient times. Wheat and ancient staple crops, were used to make bread and beer. Fish and poultry were also popular. Food morning-Breakfast: Ful (pronounced "fool" bean paste), eggs, cheeses and/or pickles. Ror drinks they would have shai (tea).

3-4pm-Lunch: Falafel, fatoush, fish (depending if your near the seas), shish-kebab, humus, pita bread.

8-12pm-Dinner: Egyptians usually have a light supper. Sometimes left overs from dinner. Or somtimes people make the same foods they make for breakfast.
Manners since Egypt has 90% of muslims manners is a big thing in our religion. For islam manners shows your parents has raised you well and people won't talk about you. On the kitchen table no one can speak they have to eat and thats it. you also have to wash your hands and say bismilah before you eat and when your done your supposed to say hamdala.

When your dinning at a restaurant or your at someones house, no one is supposed to eat until the host eats first. forks and spoons are the same for any restaurant. To show your done eating, you leave a little food on your plate and say hamdala. Sometimes the host will ask you to eat more and more but what you say is shukran (thank you) and hamdala again. Sweets Sweets is very popular in Egypt. Egyptians don't eat any desserts until after dinner or when a guest is over to entertain them. Egyptians always design the sweets on a plate they never just put it on the plate because it would be boring and plain. special holidays and celebrations 90% of egypt is muslim so they all study the religion of islam. The most important time of the year is a monthlong holiday called Ramadan. During the month of Ramadan muslims fast (do not eat or drink) from sunrise to sunset, and think about the people all over the world who do not have food. Muslim families will get together and prepare meals, including a variety of sweets, after sunset. After Ramadan muslims will have another 3 day holiday to end Ramadan and thats called Eid al-fitr.

During Ramadan muslims will eat soup and dates to break their fast. After that they could eat anyting they want as long as its halal but whats most popular in Ramadan is fetti, fatoush, pita bread, chicken/fish, warat innab (grape leaves) and rice. Dances
