For those of you interested in food styling and photography, check out my #facebook page (Dima Sharif) and see the post by +Meeta K explaining how she styled and shot this picture for the recipe of 'rice and goat's meat bake in a clay pot' from my book Plated Heirlooms. The picture with the head dress is for the traditional head dress from the Palestinian City #Hebron and the embroidered card has the Arabic word "Al Khalil" (meaning Hebron) and the dish is an old specialty of Hebron where my family is from :) ๐Ÿ˜ the recipe along with clay pot cooking tips and techniques are explored in chapter 7 "Ruzziat (Rice & Other grains)" and this recipe is in page 407 #PlatedHeirlooms #backtolandandhome #dimasharif #cookbook #PalestinianCuisine #falasteen #palestine #delicious #food #FoodStyling #foodphotography #CulturalFoodPhotography๏ปฟ

Thank you to all of you who tuned in this morning, and for the overwhelming response and sweet words. I appreciate it hugely and you guys made my day. I will share the podcast in case you missed it.
A picture of my "Fattet Makdoos Recipe (eggplant layered platter)" from my book "Plated Heirlooms" and the caption in the picture says "We have on this earth all that makes life worth living" by the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darweesh and today is a testament of that. Thank you! #blessed

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 :)
