A word from Megan

“I am half Palestinian and grew up in the Middle East in a family who took food very seriously. Cooking has always been a part of my life and in 2015 I started cooking professionally in kitchens in London and then in York. In 2018, I started hosting supper clubs in York to give people an authentic taste of the Levant. I am thrilled to be able to bring my guests the food of my childhood and the history behind it.”
