a month long trip to Lebanon last fall, along with other travel, art deadlines, and life is what it took to prolong my posting here! it’s great to be back with cool news: beginning in April, my weekly food column for a portland, oregon local online website called GoLocalPDX has been published featuring what’s growing in my garden and ideas coming from the Mediterranean and beyond for what to do with what’s in season in the Pacific Northwest.
here’s a link to the article all about Italian parsley, which is thriving in the spring garden and ready to use in these five Lebanese recipes from Alice’s Kitchen: tabbouli, of course, fattoush, potato salad, cabbage salad, and Lebanese omelette (ijhee).
you all know how much i love food, gardening, cooking, and writing and photographing my endeavors. so this is a fine opportunity to share my combined loves with a larger portland audience, many of whom already know and love Alice’s Kitchen!
and then this past week, May 13, i am honored for my food column to be also published nationally in ArabAmerica.com, which reaches over 100,000 arab americans! how cool is that! my column is Mediterranean Cooking from the Garden with Linda Dalal Sawaya. check it out for my weekly cooking ideas and food and garden photos. Ahlan wa sahlan!
