Aleppo (in Arabic: Halab and written like this: حلب) is the largest city in Syria, and the oldest city in the world (over 12,200 years old). I was born in Hama, and I lived part of my childhood in Aleppo.
Before the terrible war on my country Syria and four years ago, Aleppo was a thriving, cosmopolitan place. But since 2012, Aleppo is exposed to destruction, and the losses in ancient and modern city are tremendous, it is heartbreaking.
I’ll start a series called “To Aleppo With Love إلى حلب مع حبي” and I’ll post Aleppine dishes, this series of new posts is dedicated from me and my family to great Aleppo.
Watch the blog for updates…To Aleppo With Love – Soon !
