Today I would like to share with you this beautiful and special recipe. Most of us know and have tried Pita Bread but you may not have tried this recipe. I promise you wont regret it.
What make this recipe so special is that the lady who taught me how to make all kinds of bread, is that she did it to earn a little money, and she had to make it well as it was her only kind of income. She had three children and her husband was not able to work. She cooked bread for three local restaurants – she had quite a busy routine.
We first met her when my husband and I were on a holiday in Egypt. Her outdoor oven was right on the coastline, and when we went to the beach my husband went off to relax in the sun and I would go and sit with this wonderful lady and we had some wonderful chats. She taught me lots about cooking, and she looked out for me every morning by the beach. When we left, I gave her all my left over currency to help her along – she would have had to work a long time to earn that, so it made us both feel good. I have very good memories of that holiday. I wonder if she is still there now.
Whenever I go on holiday, I am not shy to ask about the local food and recipes – most of them let me have their cooking secrets and tips.
Most of my recipes are my own, but they are often inspired by places I’ve been or people I’ve met along the way, with lots of memories and fun times. I always look forward to my holidays, wondering what I will learn next!
