Celebrating our Mothers and Tetas

This is when we take a moment or two or three to show a token of appreciation to all the mothers and grandmothers of the Beit Sitti team!

First and Foremost we start with Um Azmi!! a beautiful soul inside out!!! her lack of filter is one thing that keeps us entertained!! another is her famous Maftoul made from scratch with water and flour!!


Followed by our super-dooper trooper Um Reem all the way from Iraq! Um Reem is the calm that keeps Beit Sitti ashore! and like a jack of all trades theres nothing Um Reem cannot do! Keep an eye out for her Fattet Magdoos…. its one for the “Cook” books!!


Um Heba, has been with us through thick and thin!! with a smile like hers, how can you not fall inlove at first sight!! Um Hebas Hurra Usba3o is a feast and a half but thats not all!! she makes a killer Maaloubeh too!


Um Mihnaz, all the way from Halab cannot let any dish leave the table without adding a little bit of her Syrian flair, weather its dried mint on tabbouleh, or kibbeh casing with lemon zest, Um Mihnaz is a real treat!


Um Bayan, the most genuine person we know! she just wants everyone around her to be happy; her motto in life!  theres no doubt were always happy when she’s around! her Ouzi Surar are the best in town like fluffy pillows after a long tiring day


Um Victor,  new to the team Um Victor is the sweetest! but thats not to say her Kafta isn’t the meanest! Um Victor used to live above Beit Sitti and everytime she started cooking we couldnt help but stop by for a bite or two!


Um Yazan all the way from Karak  brings her Jameed from her familys’ house and it is nothing short of wonderful… almost as wonderful as she is!!

We know being a mom is hard work and these women do it with so much passion and flair that they manage to squeeze in a couple of sessions in between!!!

Thank you to all the mothers out there… and a special thank you goes out to our Mother Sherin Mseis Haddad who has pushes us to our limits and supports us in everything we do!! MAMA you are our “ROCK”star!!!
