What is 'Kosherati'?

As interest in traditional food preparation, ingredients and recipes continue to grow, Elli is proud to be introducing her own version of Kosher home cooking to the United Arab Emirates. Her own multicultural background (raised in South Africa to Greek parents and living around the world) has enabled her to constantly innovate Kosher recipes with locally-sourced flavors. 

One of the best parts of living in the UAE is access to the incredibly diverse spice souqs as well as the generous invitations to cook amongst other Emirati women in their homes. "Kosherati" refers to the fusion of Kosher and Emirati derived from a mutual blend of familial respect and keeping bellies full. 

From our blended kitchen to your home table!
