Be Your Own Chef: These Arab Food Bloggers Will Guide You Through Your Yummiest Quarantine

The quarantine has turned us all into hard-core food enthusiasts. Yes, we all vowed to use this extra time that we currently have in isolation to do the things we didn’t have the time to do before; to practice our favorite hobbies, do yoga, workout every morning in your room… But this only happened for the first week of the quarantine, because let’s be real, at the end of the day what else are we supposed to do? Netflix and eat in bed of course.

Below you’ll find some of our favorite food bloggers and chefs from around the Middle East to help you get you extra creative and show you what to cook! From Morrocan to Jordanian cuisine, here are some mouthwatering recipes to get you through quarantine.

Need some inspiration for breakfast? How about baking some Kaek bil simsim or Jerusalem bagels to enjoy over the weekend? (I know at this point, we've all lost track of days, space and time but hey that's more of an excuse to use the time to try something new or bake an old favorite 😉) . Ka3ek bel semsem or Jerusalem bagels are a traditional bread popular in the old city of Jerusalem and throughout the Levant (Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon). Many start their day buying one of these from bakeries or carts selling them in the street. If you pass through any of the old streets of Amman  in the early morning, you are bound to hear ” toasty toasty ka’aek” being called out from an old man driving his cart, greeting you with a smile and a wish for a wonderful morning. If you stop by, you can buy this sesame bread plain or as a sandwich filled with cheese, zaatar, falafel or oven baked eggs. The detailed recipe is in the highlights 😊 شو محضرين لفطور الجمعة اللي ممكن تكون اخر جمعة قبل شهر رمضان الفضيل؟ شو رأيكم تخبزوا كعك القدس الجميل لتستمتعوا فيه مع العائلة بكرة؟ بمناسبة كعك القدس..شو الذكريات اللي مرتبطة عندكم فيه؟ العربايات اللي بتنادي الصبح(كعك كعك..محمص محمص كعك) ؟ و الا شوارع القدس الحبيبة؟ و الا ايام المدرسة؟ الوصفة التفصيلية في الهايلايتس (اللهم بلغنا رمضان جميعا يا رب و اعنا على صيامه و قيامه 😊) #chefindisguise #Jerusalem #bakingfromscratch #palestine #palestinianfood #arabiccuisine #ramadanrecipes #platter # #فطور #thebakefeed #خبز #click_dynamic @hautescuisines #hautescuisines #hautescuisines_global #storyofmytable #vscoinspiration #still_life_gallery @bbcgoodfood #foodfluffer #thehub_food #halal  #eeeeeats #Foodlover #beautifulfood #foodph #onthetable #heresmyfood #beautifulcuisines #feedyoursoul #eattheworld #tastingtable
