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 of skills in the kitchen and sharing their passion for great food and ingredients with me.

My dishes reflect my roots, as well as my interest in plant based dishes 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.
