Mama BoK

Wow..!! they look so sweet.. yums..!!
btw .. reid.. although i donch comment sometimes.. due to being real busy with my brat.. i still read your blog daily.. :) or as soon as you have something posted.



Those confections look so delicious, and I am curious to know their names. Hmmm So many desserts...(looks at her hips) Well maybe we won't go there right now. ;P


The small ones in the front are called "petit-fours"; and they're the local version of the famous french miniature pastries. The large piece in the back is called "sfoof" and is a traditional lebanese sweet.

btw this comes from a small shop located in a relatively poor, off the beaten track neighbourhood of Beirut. How the heck did it get all the way to Hawaii?




Hi Mama BoK,

Don't worry about not commenting. I do that quite often myself. Sometimes, I just don't know what to say. =)

And yes, these were delicious. I ate them over the course of three days and savored every bite.

Hi Milgwimper,

I'm going to try and ask my friend for their names. I'm sure he will know...or at least can give me some idea.

Hi Dude,

Welcome to the blog!

Thanks for the information. I had no idea about the shop and wondered why I couldn't find any information on the web about it.

These confections were brought back to Hawaii by a friend who recently returned from a month long visit with his family in Lebanon.

Hi Jonny,

Long time no hear! right! =) I wish I had more...



Thanks for the information! Wow okay this will be hard to acquire, but maybe there is a place somewhere easier to get these sweets.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
