About Wafaa Powell
I live in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, with my family but I was born in Lebanon where I lived until I married my English husband in the 1990s. I am the youngest of 7 siblings and people are at the heart of everything I do.
My inspiration for cookery comes from my mum, who found in food the best way to show her love and, as a result, I am very passionate about people, food and dance. My mum’s recipes are traditional, simple and tasty and those she in turn learnt from her mum and her neighbours. These are the recipes I grew up eating and learning how to prepare.
I believe eating should be a pleasure as much as a necessity and the relationship between people and food defines the culture of a place.
