Food used to be an important social activity in my life, then it turned out to passion. I grew up in a passionate family of making food, so I was always there to help my grandmother and mother going shopping for groceries, then preparing the food with a lot of love, patience, and paying attention to details, like spices, colors and mixed tastes. When I moved to Europe, dining was the easiest way to make friends, food was the bridge between me as a stranger to the community. It was always easier to start with food, drinks from my area," I met few people who thought that we don't produce drinks with alcohol in the Middle East", then to start talking about music, as it was the background of evenings around tables, to finally break the ice and get to know each other and make good friends. Now as I moved to Barcelona, where I got same climate as where I grew up *Gaza Strip*, same sea and produce same fresh veggies, meat and fish that I used to have back home. It felt just right to start sharing my food, culture, music with people who would like to know more about this area from real people not only from news.
I'm in my thirties
I used to work as a journalist back home, then as a information consultant in an asylum seekers reception center in Norway, and now am working in Booking.com.
