Hello, welcome to the chef in disguise
My name is Sawsan. I am a mother of two amazing kids, 8 and 3 and a half years old. I work part time as an orthodontist (don’t be scared I don’t bite) and I am the author, photographer and stylist behind Chef in disguise.
I started Chef in disguise in February 2011 on a whim.I loved cooking, baking and food photography and a blog seemed like a good creative vent.It started out as the food doctor for the first month or so but then I changed the name to Chef in disguise.Being an orthodontist by day and a food explorer by night, I thought “chef in disguise” was an appropriate name. In my blog I share easy authentic middle eastern recipes along with family favorites from around the globe. You will also find a glimpse of life in Jordan, the culture, and the famous landmarks .
Food on Chef in disguise
Living in the middle east -despite everything you hear in the news- has its perks. The middle eastern cuisine is rich in healthy recipes that focus on fruits, vegetables, spices and making the best out of seasonal and fresh ingredients.I share many easy and authentic middle eastern, Levantine and arabic recipes. Along with the traditional there are recipes that are my takes on old and popular recipes like mixing Indian naan bread with arabic manousheh. No journey is complete without a sense of adventure and I love trying out and exploring new ingredients, new recipes and new cuisines. That means you will see recipes here from around the globe. Italian and Mexican cuisines are personal favorites but the list of cuisines I’ve explored is long and the list of the ones I still want to explore is even longer
Photography on Chef in disguise
Unless otherwise stated all the pictures you see on Chef in disguise are taken by me.
The early posts on the blog were photographed using point and shoot Olympus camera, now I use a Nikon D3100 camera with the basic 18-55 lens.
Food photography is one part I truly enjoy working on,be it styling, choosing props or trying to learn more and get better with every picture.
