A bit about me

I’m Steph and I’m from Belgium and Britain, and a bit from Sweden too. I work in the not-for-profit sector. In another life, I would have been a chef (or maybe a dancer). I’ve visited Palestine several times over the last 15 years and I’ve always loved its culture and food. And of course the Palestinian hospitality. So in between a relocation from London to Brussels, I decided to spend a few months in the Occupied Palestinian Territory to get to know the place a little better and learn about Palestinian cooking. With this project, I hope to share something a bit different about Palestine and the Palestinians. Read more about the Taste of Palestine project, and about my partner organisation Shoruq.
