I meant to post about Food Revolution almost two months ago, when I volunteered as a photographer at the group’s first event in Kuwait. Clearly, I didn’t get around to posting anything about the event! I volunteered at another workshop yesterday and this time I’m not putting off writing about it, mainly because I firmly believe in this group’s cause in wanting to encourage  healthy living.

Food Revolution Kuwait Budour

The Food Revolution is a global movement initiated by Jamie Oliver to change the way people eat. A mass social event took place in May and aimed to educate everybody about the harms of processed food, give people better alternatives and promote cultural change on a large-scale (targeting schools, corporations and even governments). Spearheading the Food Revolution in Kuwait is health coach Juna Al-Awadhi, nutritionist Dr. Nada Al-Ragum and organic food fanatic and entrepreneur Jumana Al-Awadhi of  www.welovekuwait.com.

Foodie Series: Faisal AlNashmi @Zubaneen

My friend and fellow foodie Fatmah from F. Scribbles and I decided to start a Foodie Series on both of our blogs. We will both feature the same people but will post at different times.

Our first feature is Faisal AlNashmi, commonly known as Zubaneen, an aspiring chef and a fresh graduate. I have been following him on Instagram for a while now and what caught my attention is how he recreates traditional dishes in a new and refreshing way, as well his incredible food photography!

We asked him 8 foodie questions and below you’ll find his enthusiastic responses.

1. What do you do on a day to day basis?
I’m currently a freelance cook. My day usually starts at 9 am at the Sultan Center, buying ingredients for the dish I will be testing in the kitchen that day. When I get home and into the main kitchen, this is where the fun begins; sprinkles of flour and smudges of oil all over the countertop. Our cook prays to God that some day I leave this child play. My main goal is to plate the dish when lunch is first served upon my Dad’s arrival. I take it to our garden and start shooting to upload on Instagram (my best friend), then get comments while my family each get a bite. The rest of the day? Well, going through piles of pictures and editing for next day’s upload. Continue reading

Recap: @LigneRosetKW’s gorgeous items and a special offer!

In February I featured one of my favorite furniture and home accessories store in Kuwait ,Ligne Roset,, located in the Creative Design Center. The feature is divided into three posts.

The first post featured the cups, the pots and decanters.

And then the plates, the bowls and the placemats

And lastly, we kept the best for last, the table accessories 

Don’t forget! Upon mentioning The Oven Experiments, Ligne Roset – Kuwait would like to offer you a gift for every purchase made for 50 KD and above at the store! The gifts items, which are extremely limited, are originally retailed for 40 – 60 KD, and that is quite the bargain. This offer will be valid until all gifts are gone. So hurry up!
