Close your eyes for a second. Imagine a gigantic blender in front of you. Add a piece of Spain, a chunk of Lebanon, a splash of Israel and a hint of America. Turn it on. Blend until smooth and voila! What do you get? Identity crisis? Not quite… (ok, maybe a little bit). But mostly, you get us. Confused? Keep reading and you’ll understand.
We were born and raised in Barcelona, Spain and now live in a small town on the East Coast of the United States ( I know what you're thinking.... why??? we will go ahead and say it, we blame our husbands for that one). Our parents are Lebanese - Syrian Jews . Our mom cooked the best, most flavorful, comforting home cooked meals you could ever imagine. Moving away from that, now that was a challenge.
So we decided to bring a piece of it here with us and share it with everyone. After all, what better way to make new friends and share our culture that through food. Which brings us to how we started our blog May I Have That Recipe? from our passion for food, our love for people and our need to share both.
The ingredients, the flavors and the stories behind our recipes might change, but we can guarantee one thing: like our friends, you won't leave our home without asking: May I Have That Recipe? Enjoy!
