  2. After endless searching on the internet for an AUTHENTIC Lebanese recipe for Shish Taouk and a Toum recipe (what a Bonus!) I have to say that this is by far the most authentic tasting recipe that I have found. I lived in Beirut for a long time, and really really give this one a go. Its so close that if I close my eyes when eating it, I could be back in Beirut sitting at a table with my shish taouk with garlic sauce, hmmm simply lovely. 10 out of 10.
    Dont change the given recipe if you want authentic taste.
