About Amani

Cooking has been my passion for as long as I can remember. As a child, my happy place was the big table in my grandparents’ house in Iraq, filled with delicious, hearty, and aromatic food made by my grandmother. She always applied her own mouth-watering twists to classic Arabic and Middle Eastern meals and delicacies, inspiring my lifelong love for cooking.

Later, inspired by these cherished childhood memories, my home in the UK became a hub for family and friends. The air was often filled with the scent of saffron from slow-cooked saffron lamb and rosewater syrup dripping from honey dumplings. Now, I want to share my culinary experience and passion with you, bringing the warmth and vibrancy of Middle Eastern cuisine to your table.

Where to Find Amani’s Kitchen

Local Food Markets

You can find me at local food markets, offering mouth-watering Arabic and Middle Eastern food like Kuba, Dolma, and my own authentic Arabic Falafel. Kuba is a thin outer layer of potatoes and/or rice stuffed with minced meat, and we also offer a vegan option. Dolma, stuffed vine leaves made from my grandmother’s recipe, features a tangy and juicy filling of rice and vegetables. Our Arabic Falafel is another highlight, made with a unique blend of spices that create a delicious, crunchy treat.

Vegan Markets

At vegan markets, I serve snacks and delicacies made with only plant-based ingredients. Enjoy dishes like spinach Fatayer with pomegranate seeds, Zaatar (thyme) pastries, vegan Mosakaa, and vegan filo pastry filled with plant-based cream, baked and drizzled with rosewater syrup. Additionally, we offer biscuits filled with dates, providing a sweet end to a delightful plant-based meal.
