About Me

Hi I’m Rouba, welcome to my Food Journey!

I’m not a chef.  I’m a self-taught home cook.

My 3 passions in life are my family, my culture and food.

Hospitality is central to my Middle Eastern culture and our food is the ultimate cuisine for sharing. I am a mum of two boys and have a large extended family & circle of friends – so naturally entertaining and sharing food has become a huge part of my life.

My Food Journey began when I first left home and was barely able to cook an egg! I was in trouble.

That’s when I started hunting for simple Middle Eastern recipes from magazines, books and TV. I was so hungry for good recipes – I’d even start conversations with strangers in grocery stores!

Here, I want to share my story, my traditions and my own modern take on simple, healthy Middle Eastern recipes that just burst with flavour.

I’ll show you how easy it can be to whip up a delicious Middle Eastern meal at home using just a handful of ingredients you have in your fridge or pantry.

And now, I’m so excited to share the joy of cooking with you!
