Whilst being brought up with her families in both Egypt and Germany it was for the amazing cooking and hosting skills of her beloved Aunty Mouneira in Cairo that brought Marina into learning about Egyptian cooking.
Living in Shropshire’s beautiful food town of Ludlow and having access to super fresh produce has inspired Marina to develop her own style and add some modern twists to cooking Egyptian vegetarian mezze.
Her beautifully designed booklet has been created in collaboration with some great artistic professionals in Shropshire: food photographer Ashleigh Cadet (www.acadet.co.uk) and graphic designer Matthew Lloyd (www.thinkgraphic.co.uk) who also runs his own food business The Fabulous Coboven Company (www.coboven.co.uk) and printed by www.orphanspress.co.uk.
