Hello 2019! The very first post of the year had to be a healthy (healthy-ish?) one and not the kind that makes you force yourself to empty your plate and then immediately grab your phone to order a burger. Tell me you’ve also been there!Read More
I know it’s been a very long time friends and I had genuine intentions to post this recipe a few weeks ago but as you probably noticed, summer happened and it made me postpone a few blog posts on my editorial calendar #sorrynotsorry.Read More
What’s a Buddha bowl? Because I have been seeing many of them on the Internet these past 2 years and I still can’t figure out what it essentially is. I got the basic concept behind it: compartmenting your salad but then, is that it? Is there no other requirement to achieve a Buddha bowl? I really want to know.Read More
So I am back in London and after two weeks of sun, fun and comfort food, it’s hard to go back to reality. But the good news is, summer is not over and seafood salad bowls are naturally on the menu!
But first, how have you been?Read More
When you’re hungry on a weeknight, don’t have time to cook and still don’t feel like ordering, what do you do? You make loubia! All you need is one pot, 10 ingredients and less then 1 hour! The result is a creamy and flavourful stew that is packed with earthy Moroccan flavours. My mom used to make loubia and add pieces of khlii in the stew while it was still simmering. Khlii is a kind of Moroccan-ized meat jerky, it’s incredibly tasty. It is not on the blog yet but it should make its appearance at some point!Read More
When you have an addiction to a specific food you keep adding it to everything even when it doesn’t make sense, right? Well in my case it always makes sense because my addiction of the moment (aka amlou) is so versatile, it literally works with everything. Yes! And it’s not only uber delicious, it’s also super healthy and easy to make because all you need are these 3 ingredients:
- Argan oil
I just came back from Marrakech where I had the best time! I was there as a guest chef to launch Salt Marrakech’s autumn menu. How cool is that?
The restaurant is based in this magnificent riad called Dar Les Cigognes. Everything about this place is charming and makes you feel so special. The menu is a 6 course-meal focusing on Moroccan seasonal food and modern cuisine.Read More
Summer is almost over! Well, depends if you consider September is an acceptable extension of summer. And this really depends on where you live. I like to think that September is not summer. September still means for me: “holidays are over and we’re going back to school (or reality!)”.Read More
I am back from Beirut with beautiful memories and fantastic culinary ones! My belly was so happy over there. It was my forth time in Beirut but this time was very special!
This time I made it my mission to discover as many new foods as I could, exclusively levantine foods, of course. I loved doing this! Actually, I should do it everywhere I go. Everyone should! There’s something very satisfying about going out of your comfort zone and trying new foods. Obviously, I was already pretty familiar with this type of cuisine thanks to my favourite human on earth aka husband aka Zayd who is Syrian and whose family has taught me a lot about Levantine foods.Read More
