Made with Love.
Growing up, food was the centre of our family life.
A table of abundance laid out before us.
Food shared, plates and dishes passed from person
to person, always someone eager for a particular
dish reaching out and grabbing first. Gentle
admonishments, anecdotes and jokes shouted over the
hubbub of eating.
Turkish, Egyptian, Greek and Italian dishes
Steamed and shined before us. A mish-mash of
colourful, aromatic, delicious cusines reflecting
my family's heritage and upbringing. Stories of
their lives first told to me through food and
flavours. Inspiring my life to come.
Coming to the UK, I searched for those once
familiar foods. Nothing quite compared to the
Levantine flavours or textures I remembered.
There was only one thing for it. Make it myself.
And as is our tradition, share it.
From humble plants and pulses come enchanting
dishes. Authentic houmous, falafels and dips made
for sharing. Generously portioned, nourishing the
love between family
and friends. A gift passed on from my family to yours.
