Azoumeh: Teta Nahla's Eid Azoumeh
Date(s) - 07/22/2019

Teta, Grandmother in arabic, Nahla is my grandmother. Every Eid the whole family would gather at her house for breakfast. But Teta Nahla did not make an ordinary breakfast. She would stay up all night prepairing a Kharoof Mahshi, a whole lamb stuffed with spiced rice and pine nuts and our family’s signature dish, Allayet Bandoora, which is a tomato stew that consists of onions, garlic and tomatoes cooked down for hours until it’s a beautiful sauce that we serve along side the stuffed lamb.
With this dinner I wanted to recreate that childhood memory of going to my Teta’s house and having the whole family together enjoying amazing food and great company.
