The Author

About the Author

Ahlan, I’m Kitty, the founder of Welcome2Jordan and author of this cookbook. Welcome2Jordan is my personal project that is very dear to my heart. It incorporates my passions for Jordan’s rich culture and food. I’m a huge foodie myself. But more than just eating, I love to cook. Most dishes that I prepare are traditional Middle Eastern, as you’d find them in Jordan and other Levantine countries.

Living in the Netherlands as an expat, I realized that people enjoy Middle Eastern food a lot, but are often intimidated to make it. After all, Middle Eastern cuisine has different ingredients, combinations and methods when compared to most Western cuisines. My goal is to make Middle Eastern cooking more understandable and approachable. Being familiar with the ingredients and principles of Arab cuisine, I strongly believe that everyone can cook delicious Middle Eastern food at home. And I’m here to show you!
