So I've been lucky enough to have cooked for some wonderful people since i have been a chef. And more so since i have started my Palestine on a Plate Journey.

Speed Sisters

One of the most interesting thing about our times and generation is the news and how we can access it so quickly. I love all things positive and don't watch regular news that much unless there is something catastrophic that is happening and needs our attention.

Rebuild Gaza

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. 

As of four days ago, several trucks have been arriving in Gaza to begin this new chapter. Its the first time since Israels military offensive that anyone has been allowed in to Gaza. The gulf state also hosts the exiled leaders of Hamas, the Islamist faction that still dominates Gaza.

Clowning Around

Everyone needs to smile and to forget things that can cause stress and heart ache. And I cant think of any people more in need of this then the Gazan People. After the 3 wars that they have seen and endured and the massacre of the last summer, their children are being left with scars so deep that they are suffering incredibly high delayed traumas and psychological breakdowns.
