Ahlan wa sahlan! Kalos Orisate!

Welcome to Aladdin's Kitchen.

This project started as my hobby in order to combine free time with my love of creating good and healthy food. My love for the Mediterranean diet and its health benefits have pushed me to share my recipes collected from family, friends and trips around the world. In here you will find recipes from all over the Mediterranean: from Athens to Zahle!

I hope you and your guests enjoy these flavorful recipes as much as I do.

Bon appétit!

The juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons of Tahini
