Hi, I'm Rita, I'm a forty-something wife and mum currently living in the beautiful Hunter Valley Wine Country which is a couple of hours north of Sydney NSW.
My Dad taught me to cook from a young age, but he wasn't my only teacher. Some of my most vivid childhood memories are food related - being at an aunt and uncles home with cousins flying everywhere (my dad is one of 6 brothers so we have a LARGE extended family!). Being in the kitchen with my mother and aunts preparing, cleaning, given a task such as peeling garlic for Toum or threading cubes of meat onto skewers ready for the BBQ or juicing lemons for the Tabouleh, or washing dishes; learning by watching and listening about balance, seasoning and flavors in food as well as in life.
In my family and my extended family's families, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Food is the language that I use to care for the people I love, and although my father never taught me how to speak Arabic, he did give me the gift of the language of food.
I created the My Father's Table App because I have so often been asked by friends to share recipes and food from my Middle Eastern heritage. Here you will find authentic, traditional family recipes, as well as information about the latest cooking classes and workshops running.
I love preparing, cooking and eating fresh, healthy Lebanese food using the recipes and know-how my father taught me. I am hoping that you will enjoy dishes from My Father's Table too. Please let me know if there are particular foods you might like to try!
Sahtain! (Sa-KH-tan): an Arabic word meaning double health, that you wish someone enjoying their food, before or after eating.
