We’ve turned to the UAE’s best food bloggers for inspiration on what to make for dinner.
For our first installment of What’s Cooking, Abu Dhabi, we turn to Dubai-based author and A to Zaatar food blogger Courtney Brandt who clearly finds comfort in food.
Her choice of go-to recipes speaks volumes about her. If you were to go by her Instagram, Courtney’s strictly 5-star, but when she’s home she finds comfort in tried and true grilled cheese and pasta, so it’s true people: influencers are just like us!
Tell us, what you’re cooking, Abu Dhabi! We’re excited to share what everyone’s cooking these days.
Tag #WhatsCooking and #YallaEats in your next post, and we’ll share the ones we love.
“In quarantine when I need a break from marketing my books, such as Twenty Year Reunion & The Queen of England series, editing my next project, attempting a few online workout videos, and blogging at A to Zaatar, I turn to food to get my mind off my isolation. And specifically, I turn to pasta. Is there anything more comforting than carbs? And really, can you ever go wrong? With a few simple ingredients, the reliability of Italian cuisine is more meaningful than I ever would have imagined. While I don’t have the skills to make my own fresh pasta (yet!), I always feel accomplished (and full) after a giant dish of carbonara. There are plenty of versions out there, but one of my favorites is by Jamie Oliver. Alternatively, for an easy lunch, I love the humble grilled cheese. This sandwich can be dressed up or down (we always add fresh tomato and a bit of garlic salt!), but never fails to satisfy.”
