The International Academy of Gastronomy – IAG (L’Assemblée Générale de l’Académie Internationale de la Gastronomie – AIG) awarded Lebanese entrepreneur Kamal Mouzawak the Grand Prix AIG de la Culture Gastronomique 2018.
Created in 1990, it is awarded to a person or entity (city, region, professional school, university chair, international institution, etc.) that distinguished oneself in the cultural field of gastronomy.
Mouzawak is the founder of the ‘Tawlet’ restaurant, which now has five outlets, and the ‘Souk El Tayeb’ weekly farmers’ market. Souk El Tayeb has evolved since 2004 from an experimental farmers market promoting small-scale farmers and producers, to an organization working on both, national and international projects to promote and preserve culinary traditions, rural heritage and the natural environment.
Mouzawak has also launched ‘Beit’, a chain of guesthouses with four outlets: Beit Ammiq, Beit Douma, Beit El Qamar, and the recent Beit El Tawlet.Add to Favorites
