Behind the Food
AN ODE TO MY MOTHER & MY HOMELAND OF PALESTINE
Palestine is part of the Fertile Crescent and was a key stop on the silk road, bringing together people and cultures throughout history. This is reflected in the eclectic Mediterranean cuisine, deeply rooted in local ingredients but with influences that span the globe. Chef Ruba's intent is to revive this tradition in the Palesitinian Diaspora.
THE MEDITERANNEAN DIET
For millennia Mediterranean cuisine has been a vibrant and delicious way of maintaining a heart healthy lifestyle. The foundation of Mediterranean food is plant based which makes it naturally high in fiber and antioxidants. Healthy fats like olive oil and omega-3s aid in keeping your mind sharp, your immune system fortified and your body strong.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - anti-inflammatory, improves hair, skin, eye and bone health, boosts HDL cholesterol
Tahini -rich in iron and magnesium, fiber, and protein
Sumac - increases metabolism, treats chest and respiratory issues
Chickpeas - high in fiber and protein, low calorie, high in manganese which promotes skin health
