Episode 5 – Colors Candid Conversation

In this episode of “Colors Candid Conversation Show”, I share with the audience of “Colors Asia Pacific”, a Singapore-based Indian channel, snippets of my life as food writer and diplomat’s spouse, while demonstrating how to cook Kushari in clear easy steps.

Kushari is the most iconic Egyptian street food that surprisingly has Indian roots. Watch the full episode here.


 

I was honored and thrilled to contribute in the media campaign of the US embassy in Singapore, promoting the American tradition of Thanksgiving and the diversity of American cuisine. 

In this pre-covid episode, I walked the alleys of the Singaporean wet markets, sharing with the international audience the abundance of fresh produce in the red dot, while shopping for my Egyptian-American menu for Thanksgiving dinner.

In this video, I create the Pumpkin-Coconut Pudding dish, a fusion, vegan, and sweet dish that is inspired by Egyptian Pumpkin Pudding, spiced up by American flavors, and made of Asian ingredients.

I contributed to the Autumn edition of Mediterranean Lifestyle Magazine with the iconic Egyptian street food Kushari. In addition to the step-by-step recipe, I cited the best places in Cairo to have a memorable Kushari meal.

Foul Madames or Egyptian Stew of FAVA Beans is a street food that fills  stomachs and put a big smile on the faces of locals and tourists alike. This humble meal can’t be more delicious or satisfying. In this family signature rendition, I use the same technique that my grandma used to cook it from scratch.
