Bethany Kehdy, celebrated Lebanese American cookbook author of The Jewelled Kitchen and The Jewelled Table, and founder of Taste Lebanon, will be launching in Dubai her new food concept, DAYMA, a Levantine cookhouse creating her signature and contemporary dishes and delivering them to your home.
DAYMA from Arabic, meaning time and again, or may it (meal) be repeated, is a term used to show a generous host gratitude for the shared feast. The menu goes beyond modern, national borders to create the authentic, rich and shared culinary cuisine of the Levant. Some of her popular dishes include Kalbid’s rice kibbeh, aubergine sfiha stars, prawn sambusek, carrot mutabal, cabbage tabbouleh, chicken musakhan, and sour cherry kebbeh – the dishes bridge past and present by celebrating classics and seasoning them with contemporary touches.
DAYMA celebrates Bethany’s success as a renowned chef, cookbook author and champion of Middle Eastern cuisine. Her culinary tours throughout Lebanon have taken her on a delicious journey, visiting traditional homes in the countryside and curating century-old recipes handed down through generations. These discoveries into the history of Levantine cuisine have led her to revive forgotten recipes from the region, giving rise to the wonderful menu of DAYMA.
“I’m very thrilled to be launching DAYMA, my newest endeavor. The menu offers all the familiar classics with fresh, comforting twists. They’re truly dishes you can’t find elsewhere and suitable for office lunches, to family dinners and gatherings. Our shared Levantine kitchen is naturally quite vegetarian-led and so there are plenty of delicious offerings in that category too!” commented Bethany Kehdy, founder of DAYMA.
DAYMA will be available on all major food delivery apps and will bring to the table a culinary experience that is convenient, wholesome, and delicious and a playful work of art.
