A message from our Chef Obah:
“Hello, my name is Obah. I am from Somalia but was born and grew up in Kuwait. I never cooked when I was young, as my mum never had time to teach us. I learnt to cook when I got married to my husband 23 years ago, starting with Kabes (Somali chapatti). It didn’t turn out perfect the first time, but I was determined to do it again and from there I just learnt through practicing. I really enjoy learning about new food from different cultures, and mixing them together!.”
A sample menu of the dishes that will be taught include:
Beef Suqaar (Beef Stew)
Vegetable Suqaar (Vegetable Stew)
Barissie Iskudaskars(Seasoned Rice)
Shidni (Spicey Chutney)
