Food Experiences.

I strongly believe in the power of food. I love how it brings people together. I love how a smell or a dish brings back memories. I love the laughter which happens when entertaining. More than all of this I want to share this with you, your friends, and your family.

I want to help you to reconnect and achieve these things I enjoy. I want to support you with this because I want this for more people.

To do this, I offer a number of different levels of working with me where I walk you through the steps to creating magic and memories with food.

Interactive Cooking Classes.

Learn the skills to create wholesome Middle Eastern meals in your own home. As a great believer in the power of food to bring people together, these are group sessions where people come together to learn more about middle eastern cuisine, food traditions, and cooking (minimum of 5 people)

I will provide all of the ingredients after discussing with you what you would like to focus on and learn. Together we will make these delicious dishes, some of which are my own family recipes or ones I’ve learnt along the way.

These group sessions are perfect for a get together with friends, birthday parties, kids parties, girls night in, kitchen tea parties, bridal parties, corporate team building event; any time when friends want to come together, have fun, share time together, and come away having enjoyed that time & learnt something new.
