Beauty of Double Exposure (NSFW)


Double exposure taken to a whole new level..



Another little treasure found at “words bookstore cafe”. This book, which is way more than just a cooking book, offers us a look at a region crippled with stories of struggle and sadness.

It takes you on a journey of two chefs, a Palestinian (Sami Tamimi), and an Israeli (Yotam Ottolenghi). A journey where they build and cross bridges between two cultures that have so much in common culinary wise.

The outstanding recipes and the backdrop of the city of Jerusalem is the very beautiful context of this book.










Finally someone has done it!!!

Bahrain’s first locally farmed, locally grown, and locally sourced restaurant 😀 and I am going to go try it out as soon as I’m done from work!

My Secret Cafe, a project that is supposed to last for the next three months is the brainchild of husband and wife Omer Rana and May Mahmoud. The couple have used the growing momentum of locally farmed and locally grown food wave that has been taking over Bahrain in the last couple months, along with their love for food and knowledge of the local produce market to put together a small yet fresh menu.

From the jalapeno lime fish tortilla to the baby spinach and dates salad, Omar and May’s project is bound to be a success and hopefully a start of a movement that will take the current culinary scene of Bahrain a step up!

If you’re in Bahrain pass by the lovely Bahrain fort and support them!

UPDATE: i got to pass by the little cafe yesterday and got to try their steak and tomato sandwich and their chicken and pepper sandwich and they are everything i had hoped they would be! Fresh, succulent and oozing with delicious flavors, after all that’s what you get from fresh ingredients and a little bit of Love!Today I will go back there to try the “Jalapeno lime fish taco” which May promised will keep aside for me (they were all gone by the time i got there yesterday.
