#BestinDubai in the #Organic #healthy #Seasonal #SuperDelicious #WholesomeFood category we all know the throne belongs to @bakerandspiceme because over there just because their food and philosophy is healthy, socially responsible and wholesome does not by anyway mean boring or tasteless! No the food literally is a burst of flavour in your mouth. Really outstanding and delicious (of course the quality is not even comparable to the rest of the market) what's best now is that their #Catering #Menu is all that and with a miniature option too! Really fun food, absolutely heavenly flavour and truly #GoodForYou your #Family and #Friends so here we go my #TopRecommend for #WholesomeFood #AmazingFood and #Catering options is you guys really must go with @bakerandspiceme they are #TheRealDeal ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป #myDubai #KitchensiLove๏ปฟ

A review of my modern Palestinian pop-up menu at Lafayette Gourmet (Dubai Mall) by the amazing Carla of Memoirs Of A Taste Bud. "The Palestinian Pop-Up Kitchen by Dima Sharif at Lafayette Gourmet: A dinner which was much more than just good food, it was a peak into the kitchens of Palestine and an ode to Palestinian cuisine." She describes. Read her full review on the link below.๏ปฟ

#Local Halwayu and #caramelisedonions in #TahinaSauce very fresh, earthy flavours perfect for today's lunch ๐Ÿ˜‹ head over to @lafayettegourmet and try out my #Modern #PalestinianMenu available only until the 17th and treat yourself with fantastic flavours of #PalestinianCuisine cooked to perfection ๐Ÿ˜ PS we thoughtfully chose to not go for the traditional option #Hamour because hamour is endangered (code red) and hope that you will follow suit and stir away from hamour too. The local Halwayu is an excellent substitute, come try it and see for yourself :)๏ปฟ

A review of my pop up kitchen at Lafayette Gourmet and a preview of my vision behind my upcoming cookbook.
Remember Palestine! Really I cannot think of a better thing to say! This is the title of Maia's post on her beautiful blog worthataste.com, where she speaks of Middle East stereotypical troubles, and the need to always explain that there is another side, a bright and beautiful side to this Region. Only to lead the conversation to my recent pop up kitchen at Lafayette Gourmet (Dubai Mall)โ€‹ and how it ties into all this, moving towards my upcoming cookbook and my vision behind this very dear project to my heart...
Read the full article on the link below and Remember Palestine, always with a smile :) http://worthataste.com/2015/05/27/remember-palestine/ย ๏ปฟ

Story

Bringing Food to Life
Introduction
In a nutshell;
I vividly Remember aย mischievousย 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... Absoluteย Pandemonium!!
The birth of my kitchen and myย entitlementย 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 preferredย referenceย 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!!"ย 
With Passion, know how, dedication andย perseveranceย 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 :)
