I have a great passion for creating recipes and cooking. My heritage is Anglo Palestinian  and my parents are both wonderful cooks who taught me a lot in the kitchen, sharing their love of delicious food with me.

My dishes reflect my roots, as well as my interest in plant / vegetable based cooking and seasonal ingredients. There are recipes utilising British seasonal produce, including many with  Middle Eastern twists. There are traditional Palestinian dishes I have learnt from family members over the years (continuing) and my own modern take on some of these older dishes. There are recipes that I came up with in my kitchen, enjoyed and wanted to share with you.

I teach classes and volunteer at Made in Hackney a plant based community kitchen in Stoke Newington, host supper clubs and write this blog. I am also a keen home fermenter. This year I will be featured in the ‘SOOP’ (Stories on our plate) cookery book released in September 2018.
