This #HazelnutButter is Divine! Topped with strawberries and sunflower seeds or spread on toast and had with apricot jam or sautéed pears, am telling you there is no way that this can go wrong! #Organic #Mooneh #Essentials by #DimaSharif #OMEbyDimaSharif #goodfood #realfood #healthy #delicious 😋

When You choose to eat meat, the most important thing to bear in mind is being mindful. Not just about the quality of the meat, although that is very important, but also the quality of these animals' lives. And this mindfulness is not just for the mere resulting quality of meat, but most importantly because that restricted living in the conditions of mass production farms, and the carelessness of the process of mass production eventually negatively effects the earth and consequently our overall wellbeing. Therefore if an when I choose to eat meat, I choose mindfully. And I just love @obeorganic for that. They raise their cattle following the natural process and that is priceless!

She is someone that I knew relatively recently, just a few years ago. But someone who felt as if had been my friend throughout my life. She quickly became a best friend, a mentor and my ultimate go to when need to talk. She is the founder of Baker and Spice London, who from there brought the concept here to Dubai and then to Kuwait and has now set off on another journey altogether back in Europe. To me, she'd been most inspiring and offered me tremendous learning on many levels and even in her feedback to me about my #book Plated Heirlooms once again she speaks to me with her much appreciated wisdom and inspiration! This is what she said: "The difference between a book full of recipes and a great food book is the context. A great food book draws you into a culture, painting a vivid picture of how life used to be lived. Here, family, landscape and eating are all intertwined into a narrative which clearly states: This is how we were because that is what we gathered cooked and ate.
In the preparation cooking and eating of our food we define ourselves." Yael Mejia #DimaSharif #PlatedHeirlooms #cookbook #review by #YaelMejia

Dima Al Sharif’s Cook Book “Plated Heirlooms”, covers recipes from Palestinian cuisine as well as stories from over three generations of Palestinian cooking intended to reflect the culture, the earth and the historical background that gave birth to Palestinian cuisine. A beautiful read and an excellent resource of recipes and cooking techniques that any foodie or cook would love to have.

Dima describes Palestinian cuisine and her book Plated Heirlooms as "Palestinian cuisine is the compiled story of this sesame-sized country’s huge history, diverse geography and varied social groups and lifestyles. Most importantly, this cuisine is the story of the passage of time and the changes that took place throughout history. Cuisines are always reflective of all aspects of a people’s lives so Falasteen, like all countries, had plated a cuisine that can be fragmented and divided into sections and categories, however never fully understood nor completely savored until viewed as a whole. This book is that story.”

In her book Al Sharif plates over 280 Recipes starting from mooneh (the pantry) and including Cold Starters, Hot Starters, Soups, Salads, Breakfasts & Light Meals, Main Courses, Entertaining Recipes, and Desserts.

Bringing Food to Life
Introduction
In a nutshell;
I vividly Remember a mischievous 3 year old sitting in a cardboard box in the kitchen watching the mummy cook, smelling and seeing that food; and of course tasting heavenly treats coming out of that kitchen...
Many years later - a week after getting my first party catering order, and 2 hours before delivery - my four year old was on the kitchen counter, my one year old was shouting for her milk, and my husband scrambling to my beck and call... Absolute Pandemonium!!
The birth of my kitchen and my entitlement to it has been a journey ever since; in baby steps and at times in giant leaps. I see it now, as a journey with continuous growth and becoming a preferred reference for all things food and I can't help but think: "Boy! I must have been thinking way outside of that box, back when I was in it!!" 
With Passion, know how, dedication and perseverance you too can achieve your dreams. Dreaming is the first step, but DOING THE WORK is what gets you there. This is my journey and I hope to somehow inspire yours :)
