I am a food writer, cookery teacher and twice a year, I lead culinary tours to Syria, Turkey & Morocco. I grew up in Beirut and spent my summers as a young thing in Meshta al-Helou in Syria, which is my father’s ancestral home. It used to be only family but now it is a large summer resort. I left home many, many years ago and have lived in London ever since, with stints in Paris & Kuwait. Back in London now, living in a gorgeous loft in Shoreditch. The advantage is that I have a fabulous kitchen. The disadvantage is that Shoreditch at the weekend is a nightmare, with thousand of alcohol tourists roaming the streets. Still, a great place to live & work. You can find out more about me and my books on the relevant pages of my website.
