 Kubbeh, a stuffed dumpling, is a common food in the Middle East and is especially popular in the Nazarene cuisine. A popular Nazarene Kubbeh is made of shredded wheat turned into Bulgur during a special process, and mixed with fresh minced lamb meat.

 
Kubbeh in various forms and preparation methods
Kubbeh is made of two main parts: the dough, which makes the wrapping, and the filling. The Nazarene cuisine has a lot of variety, which allows for much creativity in the preparation of the Kubbeh for different nuances in taste and texture. Since it is such a central part of the Nazarene cuisine, the people of Nazareth eat the Kubbeh in many variations:
1. Fried and baked
2. Barbecued
3. Raw Kubbeh with the addition of fried onion, pine-nuts and cooked meat on top
4. Deep fried, filled with meat and fried onion
5. Cooked Kubbeh in Yogurt
6. Kubbeh soup

Kubbeh, a glass of Arak, and what`s in between
Other than being a favorite Nazarene food, the Kubbeh has become a symbol in the Galilean-Nazarene culture. For example, in cold winter days, especially at New Year the Nazarene Christians love eating the Kubbeh accompanied by a glass of Arak. They throw Kubbeh balls at the wall, to indicate the end of the former year and the beginning of the new one.
Were you to wander around in Nazareth years ago, on new year`s eve, you wouldn`t be able to ignore the sound of Kubbeh meat being pounded in a special stone bowl. This was a chore reserved for the matriarch, during which pieces of meat would fly to the ceiling, and sticking to it.
