Your most unforgettable memory during the Holy month
Walking with my late father through downtown Cairo when I was 8 years old. He showed me where he used to go when he was a young man living in Cairo and it’s those days I miss the most.
Biggest kitchen failure
I burnt my entire right hand with flaming hot oil about 15 years ago. The best lesson I ever learned about respecting fire and the potential pain if I don’t.
Favourite Ramadanic dessert
Mehallabia Qamar el deen. I can’t get enough of it!

Katsuobushi is dried smoked and petrified bonito fish that lends an amazing depth and smokiness to soups, dressings – you name it!
