"To me, the Souk is the epitome of what it means to 'have guts'. Despite bombings and unrest in their city, the market continues to not just function, but to flourish - celebrating culture, cuisine and agriculture. It's very existence is as an act of resistance against sectarian violence." - Rene Redzepi "Lebanese culture served on a plate." CNN
