I have been very lucky that i have good friends, some luck with publicity and people who are interested in my work. I have been asked to participate in several supper clubs serving Palestinian food. I have said yes to all of them as i think it is time people knew how wonderful our food is.Read More
I just watched a clip of what i thought was an extremely touching, eye opening scene to Gaza and the people living there. The music is beautiful and the people excited to be a part of it. Gaza has had its first red carpet experience, literally. There was a film festival on human rights and nowhere else would this have been more fitting then in Gaza.Read More
I have not written for a few weeks as i have been a little busy with Palestine On A Plate and also to be honest, i have been feeling a little disturbed by the news and what has been happening in Palestine and the rest of the world.Read More
It has been a long time coming. A long time that Palestine was acknowledged and its people recognised. And no better place to begin that the ICC. This April 1st 2015, The ICC welcomed Palestine as the 123rd state to its founding Rome statute.Read More

A Chilean football team called Palestino has redesigned their football gear and to say that it is AMAZING is an understatement. They have substituted the number 1 with the Palestinian flag and kept the colours of Palestine, red, white, black and green.
In the 20's, Palestinian immigrants who fled to Chile founded a football club called Deportivo Palestino. This is based in Santiago. Chile has one of the biggest Palestinian communities outside of Palestine,Read More
Some months ago, after operation Protective edge, Qatar became the first country to offer financial aid to Gaza. It has apparently bid between 1-5 Billion dollars to help reconstruct the city to rebuild the homes lost in this massacre.

Isn't it an amazing thing when technology can become a weapon for good rather than evil, to help change the idea and thought about something or someone. Hamas are suggesting a new way that is in their control, to answer questions from the public via twitter with the hash-tag #AskHamas.Read More
I write this with great pride an pleasure to have so many wonderful women in the Arab world who are making a difference in every different aspect of the market.
I have been noticing that the media has been focusing a lot on positive news about Arabs and Muslims. Not the mainstream ones necessarily but the ones that I read.

Teach them from when they are young to be strong successful women of our future generations!Read More
Although this is not necessarily recent, it is still valid. Turning a negative situation into a positive one is always a good thing, and no better way to do it than with art.
Of course everyone and their mother saw what happened last year in Gaza, and if you didn't you must have been on another planet.Read More
Being a chef is a hard job and working hard means that you get a great reward after. This has definitely been the case for me. I met Loyd Grossman in my restaurant Baity Kitchen a few years ago. He was a regular there on the weekends. I loved that he loved my place. I also love him as a person and for all the work he has done and continues to do. His sauces are the best out there!Read More
