A Night at the JW Marriott Steakhouse

One of the best privileges as a food blogger is that I very often get invited to dinners at some of the best restaurants in the country. Having said that, I rarely get invited to something as fancy as the JW Steakhouse. It’s always a top priority for me to check out how far Egypt…

Nespresso Coconut Latte – Behind the Photoshoot

In response to the increasing demand for me to share more “behind-the-scenes” of my work, I decided to take you through the journey of one of my most sophisticated photo shoots to date. This article is a little longer than I usually write but it merely gives you an idea of the amount of work…

Mido’s Sophisticated Bruschetta

I will have to start by assuming that we have all had Bruschetta before, or at least know what it is. Since there isn’t really much to explain about diced tomatoes on a slice of bread, I decided to give you a recipe for next level Bruschetta! (With all due respect to my Italian friends…..

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…
