Raspberry CheeseShake

It’s time for another Instagram challenge! This time it is sponsored by the very amazing Hautes Cuisines in collaboration with The Wonky Stove and Havoc In The Kitchen. They asked us to create a dessert drink. At first I was wondering; isn’t any sweet drink considered a “dessert drink”? Then my mind drifted… I think…

Ebi Furai.. Fry.. Huray.. Whatever! – Recipe

Maybe we should start by me explaining why Ebi Fry is so much more than fried shrimp. If you’ve ever had it, you would probably have a good idea of why it is so special, but if you ever made it from scratch, then you would totally understand why it has to be appreciated! You…

Ginger Restaurant: So much more than spice!

A couple of nights go I was invited by the lovely Ms. Zeina through a very spontaneous phone call to go and try her new restaurant: Ginger. She had mentioned that it offers Nikkei cuisine, which I have not heard of since the old Izakaya ( in Arkan) and Keji (which was awful). I was…

Dragon Fruit Coconut Creamsicles

It’s that time of month again and I have been invited to join in the challenge by The Food Art Project on Instagram. The theme of the challenge is Popsicles. I had never made popsicles before or shot them and I definitely wanted to think of something that would be worth all the melting stress….

Mido Eats 7th Anniversary

I don’t necessarily believe in lucky numbers but “7” has always been associated with good things (including the seven deadly sins). It’s been seven years since I started my blog and today marks the 7th anniversary of Mido Eats and it’s time to reflect and count some blessings. Don’t worry, I will try to make…

Nespresso Cup Quesillo (Flan)

In an effort to celebrate the limited edition Nicaragua capsule; La Cumplida Refinada, I thought of using this unique Master Origins coffee by Nespresso to create a popular Latin American dessert. I think the most amazing thing about this recipe is that it yields just one serving! So if you are a single, health conscious,…

Shiso Pesto Udon

When I come up with fusion recipes, I like to think beyond adding just one foreign ingredient to a classic dish and calling it fusion cuisine. It needs to be a bit more than that. What other ingredients can be substituted? What do the different cultures of the fusion dish have to offer each other?…

IBD-friendly Salmon Nabe Recipe

I have recently been privileged to take part in the ‘Benheb El Hayaah‘ campaign, which aims to spread awareness about Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis can cause patients to visit the bathroom every half an hour, which prevents them from being able to enjoy life as we do. Today I thought…

Easter Blues

It’s Coptic Easter Sunday and while I never understood why there are two (or maybe even three) different Easter Sundays across various Christian denominations, let me just wish for you and your families to have a happy one. This year I came across an egg coloring recipe that uses natural food colors to dye eggs…

Kunafa French Toast

It is annual tradition for me to work on some Ramadan fusion recipe for you guys to try out. This one combines all the best of the seasons’ flavors with a Western twist. This year, I simply thought of wrapping French toast in Kunafa! French toast can often end up being a flacid, soggy and…

Octopus Black Pasta

Before you ask me for a recipe, it’s really just boiled octopus and boiled pasta.. mainly. Today I wanted to give you some behind the scenes insights from the shoot of this dish. It all started with an inspiration from a stunning photo by the amazing Balabotya on Instagram. After seeing her black pasta and…

It’s annual cliche season, so let’s not make it too boring. This Nespresso cake has a hidden berry center that is shaped like a heart. The only thing you really need to be mindful of, is to cut it the right way! First, the ingredients: For the coffee cake 1/2 shot of your favorite espresso…
