About Reem 

I was born in Jerusalem to a Palestinian family revered for its cooks. Growing up, I spent days in my grandmothers', mother's, and aunts' kitchens observing and soaking up everything there was to know about Palestinian cooking.  A graduate of The Wharton School and the London School of Economics, I am a social psychologist and business consultant by training. At heart, however, I am a cook and a writer. Today I am harnessing the power of food, family and storytelling to preserve the rich history and culinary traditions of Palestinians and share them with the world. I hope you will join me on this delicious journey!
