    Egyptian "coffee" for my neighbor--need advice

    My neighbor is an Egyptian who has lived in the US for over 30 years. He's such a nice guy, my husband and I would like to invite him to have coffee with us, but I'd like to serve two or three Egyptian delicacies--that would pair with coffee. I thought of Foul Medames with pita or something. But I am at a loss for ideas... icon_confused.gif Can anyone give me suggestions of recipes I could find here at Thanks!

    Foul is mostly a breakfast item, and breakfast is typically served with tea...such as a mint or sage tea.....Foul and hummus go excellent together.
    Coffee is after a meal, and sweets such as baklava would go excellent with it. Hope that helps....May I suggest serving turkish coffee as that is the main coffee served in the middle east, and North Africa

    Fifi, thanks for the suggestions! Yes, I thought of baklava and Turkish coffee. Although he's diabetic, I know he eats sweets sometimes. Actually it was his idea, coffee instead of lunch/dinner--he's quite Americanized, ha, ha, ha! I know he doesn't want me to work, but he's worth a bit of it. THanks again!
