"Traditional Lebanese Food" is the title of two same books, one in Arabic, "Al-Matbagh al-Lubnany al-Turathy" and in French, "LE Patrimoine Culinaire du Liban" by Chef Ramzi N Choueiri. The books have plenty of beautiful lovely scenes from Lebanon with delicious Lebanese food recipes.  I am sending you few (7) images from the book where Shweir is the title. I hope you will enjoy it the same way I did with the book.

About 3 years ago, my sister sent me from Lebanon a nice Lebanese book of recipies and sure enough, it was "Chef Ramzi".
He has great recopies especially traditional lebanese master pieces like Siadieh, Samkeh Harra, etc...and don't forget the "choux a la creme" or creme puffs.
The best part now - I found out that he is from Shweir.
Thanks for letting us know.

Amazing... All the way in California and people already have that book...

Imagine, even Queen Rima Mattar, Miss Emigrants 2002/2003 has the book even though she does not read Arabic...

This seems to be a very well written and popular book that it would be worthwhile for Chef Ramzi to consider making an English edition... We are proud to add another success story from Shweir.

Al Kafa'at is more than a school, its almost a university. The main buldings are in Masourieh, after Beit Mery and Broumana. I will send you all the information when I have it. One of the schools is the cooking, where chef Ramzi is the director. The location of the institution was before in Haddad where Nadim Shweiry and his wife started a place where they used to treat and help kids with defferent disabilities. I will tell you more when I get all the information. Anyway Nadim wrote a book "Kuluna Mou3akoun" "we are all handicapped".

Dear Anwar,
Hi, Mr. Waleed Butros Sawaya is a well-known glass artist. He was the only glass blower, before his son Butros took over his place at AUB. He can turn glass to jewelry, for ladies to wear, or grapes, animals, arkeely, or any thing else. Many articles were written about him and his profession.
I know that you like to put information about any art on the web, especially if the artist is a Shweiry, so I am sending few photos and two
articles, (one in Afkar, and the other in Nahar ), for you to post if you see its suitable.





I have launched a new site called rarepicks which you can view on, I asked George if it could be posted on the homepage of shweir as I need as l many viewers as possible. Can I do this?  Please advise and thanks so much in advance.

Bring new business to Shweir

The following is an excerpt of an article sent to al Mukhtaar by Samia (perhaps Samia Chedid) and al Mukhtaar comments.  

Thank you for this article.  I see a great opportunity here for reviving the town, Does any of you know anybody at Cisco that we can contact to see if we can add such an academy in Dhour Shweir? 

Monday January 15, 10:40 am Eastern Time 
Cisco plans network schools in India 
NEW DELHI, Jan 15 (Reuters) - 

Cisco Systems Inc. said on Monday it will establish training academies in India to produce about 100,000 Internet network executives in a move to combat an expected shortage of such professionals by 2005.  Kicking off a two-day visit to India at the start of an Asian tour, Cisco Chief Executive John Chambers told reporters that it will establish 34 regional networking academies and use India as a key software base.   With the Internet medium growing at a frenetic pace, the demand for professionals to run network systems is expanding rapidly. 

According to Indian Information Technology Minister Pramod Mahajan, the world is likely to face a shortage of two million network executives by 2005.   Chambers said a training drive in the United States had raised 100,000 professionals over five years. ``I think this is a very reasonable number for India (as well),'' he said.  In addition to investing about $8.6 million to help set up these academies, Cisco would spend about two million dollars to set up a centre to develop related technology skills.

Cisco's routers lead the market in smart machines that drive the core of traffic management in the global web of computers that make up the Internet.  The Cisco Networking Academy program has about 5,900 academies worldwide now, with about 150,000 students enrolled in learning how to design, build and maintain computer networks.  Chambers said he discussed with Mahajan the significance of how spending on information technology infrastructure will power overall economic growth in the coming years and the importance of government-business partnerships to drive the field.  Cisco already has two software development centres in India, in addition to  about 1,500 dedicated engineers working for Cisco in three Indian companies.

Webmaster's Note: 

Yes ya Mukhtaar, I know a key exec. at Cisco.  I played golf with her on a few occasions and she does travel internationally for bus. development.  And I will be glad to make such proposal when we (Shweir) can provide the attractive business climate and meet or exceed such companies ideal guidelines. 
Opportunities like these abound.  The key to attracting international Fortune 500 companies to establish a plant or an academy is that we and the people of the town or country need to demonstrate that they/we have what it takes including infra structure, manpower, technical qualifications and economic and political stability to entice and attract these companies to choose us over and above many other places in the world.   

Our Al Mukhtaar has a dream of vitalizing Shweir to be active and productive year round rather than as a summer resort.  That is a bold and noble dream.  Let us see how we can help our Al Mukhtaar bring that dream closer to reality.  
If we can get the co-operation of our elected officials in the Baladieh, we are on our way to make an incredible transformation.  Everyone would benefit since companies like Cisco translates to major economic vitality that would prompt many of the Shweirieh bil Mahjar to come back home.  


Please welcome Chris Moujaes,
Another Shweiry Enterpeneur

Here is a Letter by one of our talented young Shweiri introducing his company. Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce to you Chris Moujaes son of Maria and Alfred (Gibrael AL Khoury) Moujaes, through his message. They have just moved to a new location in Austin Texas.

September 1, 2000

Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Customers,

It's my pleasure to write you this morning to announce that the final stages of development of our new Chris Moujaes Studios in Northwest Austin are just days from completion.  It's an exciting time at The Chris Moujaes Company, and I'd like to give you a quick overview of our Company and what we are ready to provide our customers and audiences with.  Our new facilities will house both our SkyBoxer Creative Group and Boxershorts Productions Company. The studio promises to provide  Moujaes' clients and audiences with a larger array of services and an increased production capacity. These services promise to continue to aggressively expand in the future.  

SkyBoxer Creative Group (formerly SkyBoxer Interactive Group), CMC's corporate creative solutions unit, provides business customers with creative solutions ranging from general design services to web design to corporate and brand imaging. The new Studio has allowed SkyBoxer to add Publishing & Printing Design and Creative Project Management services to its list of creative business solutions. Our goal is to continue to be a creative solutions powerhouse - managing all creative projects for our clients from start to finish.

Boxershorts Productions Company is CMC's digital cartoon animation unit.  Boxershorts provides such services as traditional 2D cartoon animation, 3D modeling and rendering, web animation, and character design. The Chris Moujaes Company began as a cartoon studio and the Boxershorts studio still remains at the heart of our Company.   Allow me to introduce the Moujaes leadership team. This group of professionals has been instrumental to the development of the new studio and for its smooth operations:

Julia McIlheran - Chief Studio Operations Officer, Greg Miller - SkyBoxer Senior Project Manager, Leila Matar - Boxershorts Animation Director, and Matt Ashabranner - Chief Financial Officer. I'd also like to take this moment to thank each of them for their support, dedication, and faith - without any of which, this studio would not exist.  We strive to make the Moujaes, SkyBoxer, and Boxershorts names synonymous with exceptional quality.  Our dedication to customer service and audience satisfaction is our top priority. The quality of our digital productions is a testament to our dedication.
