About

I host vegan supper clubs where I make home-cooked meals that are served family style in my home in London. The meals are a mix of, but not limited to, traditional and modern Palestinian and Levantine cuisine, and often times they are inspired by the meals that I grew up eating in a Palestinian household with a Gazan flair. You can expect to hear some stories and historical snippets about the food and the region.

Palestinian and Levantine food is characterized by rich flavors and the use of earthy spices such as cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg, tart ingredients such as lemon and sumac, and fresh herbs such as mint, thyme, parsley and coriander. These are some (but not all) of the flavors you can expect to taste at the supper clubs.

I try my best, wherever possible, to make everything from scratch and source good-quality, local ingredients. All the food being served is vegan. If you have any allergies, please get in touch beforehand and I’ll see what I can do (no promises though).

Why supper clubs?

What makes supper clubs stand out is that they are intimate, social experiences – there’s something very special about bringing complete strangers together and having them sit and eat at the same table in someone’s home.

Besides, in supper clubs you get to eat food that you wouldn’t normally find in restaurants since it isn’t economical to make at restaurant scale.

Why Palestinian cuisine?

It’s the food closest to my heart, and the food I know best. Serving Palestinian food is a celebration of Palestine and its cultural identity. Besides, it’s incredibly delicious!

Things to keep in mind

  • You can BYOB if you wish.
  • We have a cat in the house. Unfortunately, it’s not possible in our flat to keep her in a separate room, but she doesn’t go near the food or the people. If you’re allergic to cats, bring your antihistamines!
  • Location will be sent separately before the event.
  • The only request I make is that people don’t come into the kitchen. I appreciate people trying to help and bringing dishes back, but I’d rather they didn’t see the mess in my tiny kitchen (if there was any). Hosting supper clubs can be nerve-racking, and having to constantly worry about dishes in the sink or elsewhere doesn’t make things any better.
