About - Bethany Kehdy

7 May 2008



My name is Bethany Kehdy. I’m a Lebanese-American cook, presenter and author specialising in the cuisines of the Mediterranean, Middle East and North Africa.

Middle Eastern food is rooted in history, folktales and purpose. I love tracing recipes back in time while considering the common threads between our cuisine and others and the influence of varying empires. The depth and complexities of Middle Eastern cuisine deserve to be honoured and cherished before they fade to whispers beneath the dust. Equally, it’s important to not only explore this rich heritage but consider it’s place today’s world and the bold future it can behold. 

My two cookbooks are The Jewelled Kitchen and The Jewelled Table. My team and I also offer tours of Lebanon via our bespoke tour company, Taste Lebanon.
