Amazing food, with such a warm and friendly hosting family. Thank you Alaa for opening up your beautiful home and sharing Libyan food with us! I'm craving foole already and so happy to learn the barista recipe! Looking forward for more meals to come.

Attending the Libyan brunch at Khaled and Alaa's home was a beautiful experience. They are both very warm and welcoming. I, along with the other guests, thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food that Alaa and her sister prepared. Khaled is a wonderful host, and we all were made to feel comfortable in their gorgeous home. I sincerely hope to see them and their two lovely children at another mealshare.
