How did your passion for food develop? Growing up as part of the Palestinian diaspora in Jordan, I was always surrounded by quality food. My family owned a citrus farm in Jordan so I learnt from a very young age the importance of quality ingredients.
What was most challenging with this book? Gathering of information. The movement of people in Palestine made it hard to identify resources as the country’s cuisine had not been clearly and efficiently classified before.
What’s the best part of your job? I love seeing things materialise from concept to product.
