I am so happy to find this website, I to am of Syrian decent. My grandmother and grandfather were from Damascus, Syria and there marriage was arranged when they were young. They died when I was young. My father died when I was in my 20’s. I only learned how to cook syrian rice, bread pudding and my rendition of coosa. I know I don’t make that the right way. Recently I have been in touch with a cousin who will not give up the family recipes for some reason. And this is why I am so thrilled to have found you. I have briefly checked out your site and am ready to continue to see what you have. I am hoping to find recipes for the foods I remember when I was young. Stuffed Cabbage, Coosa, Fathia and Fasulia, I hope you can make these out cause I know I am not spelling them right. 😦 I know there is probably more but I won’t get into it right now, I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting these recipes online. Once I learn how to make them you can take your recipes down.LOL 🙂

Just want to drop a note that I enjoyed your step by step photos and the recipes are those that I wanted to try. It makes it easier for me to try those recipes at home.

My name is Afaf too and my daughter’s Anwar same name of your cat, not just that but I would always describe arabic food to my American friends as heavenly which they agree on,I found your website by accident but so glad I did, I’m from Jordan by the way and as you know we have some similar dishes but with some slight diffrences,living in the states really made me creative for instance I make my pita on the stove which is much more moist then the oven baked ones, I’ve also been influnced by pakistani food and add some of their spices to some of our dishes , I could go on and on talking about cooking but i dont want to make it long on you.
keep up the good job 🙂

Oh I hope you can help, I am looking for a recipe! When I was younger my mom dated a jordanian, when the family got together, they would make this Baked Cauliflower with sauce dish. It if I am not wrong at some type of nut in it also. I would love to have the recipe, I THOUGHT it was called Tahiti, but I think I am wrong. If you have every heard of this, please, PLEASE e-mail me the recipe if you know. I would love to make it again, that out of all the dishes we ate was my favorite.

I loved listening to your podcast and looking at your recipes. My father’s parents came to the USA from Syria. I grew up eating all of the wonderful Syrian food. We had frequent family gatherings as we enjoyed the delicious food. Thank you for sharing your food and culture! It was great to hear you talk about the way it was in Syria, and I could see that some of those customs had been carried on by my grandparents. I am grateful for my great family experiences.

Ramadan Mubarak. My husband and family are also from Syria and I was so glad to come across your recipes. I am an American woman who thoroughly loves the culture, family AND the food. I have been searching for years for recipes of my favorite foods and other recipes that I can make for my family especially now for when Iftar comes. I saw that you have pictured on your website, meat bread and I was unable to find the recipe. Is there anyway that you can email or update your website with this?? Thank you and I will be putting your recipes to use this ramadan.
