Award-winning Palestinian Chef Sami Tamimi
Years of Culture
Collaborating since the early 2000s, the duo have co-authored bestselling cookbooks, opened successful restaurants and brought Palestinian cuisine to the world. Sami Tamimi is the co-owner of six delis and restaurants in London and he is known for a vibrant and bold cooking style, with modern recipes influenced by his homeland.
The esteemed guests of the Qatar-MENASA 2022 Years of Culture opening ceremony at the Fire Station enjoyed a delicious selection of dishes inspired by the flavours of the MENASA region. In his first venture in Doha, Tamimi designed an appetiser based on classic Palestinian dishes, with influences from traditional cuisine, in a truly contemporary fusion of culinary cultures that was enjoyed by all.
