Lemon & Tahini is my little creation full of delicious recipes, reviews and ramblings. I was born in Kenya to a wonderful Yemeni mother and Kenyan dad and soon found myself in England at the age of 5. Growing up in a mixed cultural background exposed me to the vibrant flavours of Africa, the middle east and of course, Europe. Living in London, one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world has continued to fuel my appetite for food. I have tried so many different types of cuisines through bustling food markets, restaurants, the odd pop-up and the occasional holiday. I'm always learning, cooking and looking for new flavours from around the world, a big mouthful at a time.    

I'm definitely a savoury person and I’ve got a big thing for lemon, chilli and garlic – I use them in pretty much 99% of everything I cook!  I do also love the good ol’ humble potato in any way, shape or form, but especially in the chip form, mmmm.
