Ramadhan in London can feel pretty isolating especially when away from family, & COVID didn’t exactly help! Nothing changes in England either. We work the same hours and everything closes early. Missing the spirit we usually get effortlessly in Yemen, I invited a friend over & put together this simple Yemeni inspired sufra. I served some of Ramadhan’s classics; Samboosa, Shafoot & Bakhumri. This sufra triggered our sense of belonging and connection to the holy month. It worked its magic & brought home’s Ramadhan to us."

There is also a whole roasted chicken with veggies; beets salad, sambousek, mushroom soup and tomato with meatball soup."
