Welcome Brenda Abdelall!

We are delighted to introduce a new instructor! Brenda is an Egyptian-American, born and raised in the culturally diverse city of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her love for Middle Eastern food grew each summer during her childhood visits to Egypt, which included visits to Alexandrian coastal cities, rural villages, and the growing metropolis of Al Mansoura.  She also spent several years living in Abu Dhabi, expanding her culinary experiences and repertoire. Although she is a lawyer and president of a philanthropic consulting firm, Brenda has found the kitchen to be her creative outlet. She also runs the award-winning Middle Eastern food blog, midEATS. Brenda lives in Northern Virginia with her husband and twin boys.
