If there's one thing that reflects the spirit of Eid al-Adha in Lebanon it's the tasty and traditional sweet maamoul.This year's eid falls on Oct. 4, and its goes without saying the many bakeries of Lebanon are animated in a flurry of activity to prepare for the hordes who will no doubt line up for maamoul on the day.By experimenting with traditional fillings, certain bakeries have garnered a reputation for their maamoul. Amal Bohsali is one of the most prominent sweet shops in Beirut.Maamoul is available at Bohsali all year round, but during the holiday it is available in bulk.Bohsali, who speaks passionately about her work, believes that her shop is popular because she cares about her clientele.As the prices of the ingredients have risen over the years, so has the price of Bohsali's maamoul, to a certain extent.Maamoul was made at the Mahmoud and Ahmad Arayssi sweet shop in 1844 .The first, Malek said, puts Italy as maamoul's original source, but adapted to the particular tastes of the Arab world once it was introduced in the Middle East.
