Ramadan is a time for fasting and praying but it's also a time for food.

Sound ironic? Not really. Ramadan is a time where Muslims come together and break their fast with one and other. At sundown, it's common for Muslims to join together for the iftar feast, or the breaking of the fast.

Of course, during the day, they're fasting, so the sundown meal can get elaborate.

But all Muslims are not alike and all Muslim cuisine isn't alike, either.

Here are some iftar treats from around the world, with links to recipes.
