Saintly neighbour came over yesterday for a soubhieh – the Lebanese ritual of morning ahwe (usually enjoyed outdoors) – with a plate of her signature aniseed kaak in hand. What a way to break in a new day on the nearly finished staygha. She was very impressed with Mom’s new earless cups (the traditional way to drink ahwe from a shaffeh), and we sipped from them while taking down some of saintly neighbour’s special recipes.
