About Barbara Massaad
Barbara Abdeni Massaad has written several cookbooks, is a chef and photographer. Born in Lebanon, she then moved to the States before returning at 18 to study. Her latest cookbook, Forever Beirut, is a ‘celebration of the culinary capital of the Arab world, and of her home. ‘ (words from publisher Michel Moushabeck).
Barbara is an expert in Lebanese foods and ingredients and will demonstrate how to make a range of dishes. You’ll then get to eat her delicious creations with a glass of wine or soft drink.
Barbara will demonstrate and you’ll get to eat (!):
We are very lucky that Barbara has agreed to come to Papadeli and share wonderful recipes and demonstrate how to make delicious, traditional Lebanese favourites.
Her new book, Forever Beirut, recipes and stories from the heart of Lebanon will be for sale with funds being raised to help those who have suffered in Lebanon since the port explosion one year ago.
Beirut, two years on from the devastating port explosion where 217 people were killed, over 7000 injured and 300,000 displaced, has caused widespread destruction, is still in a serious state of hardship where the cost of living has spiralled out of control. Lebanon’s economy was already on the verge of collapse and the pandemic further stretched the country’s healthcare system to the limit.
Barbara is coming to the UK to raise awareness and funds for those struggling to access basic food and medicine in her country. The demonstration is organised by Lebanese fine food importer, Shorkk, who are also based in Bristol.
