Recipes

A sweet unusual pudding enjoyed by our clients, no one guess the unusual infusion. It’s hard to describe this heavenly dessert. But for those that try it for the first time, they often say its the best dessert they have had and there is nothing similar to it. We have cooked it for a royal family, who loved my take on it so much, they made sure their head chef contacted me for my recipe. This was a honour especially knowing that they regularly had this dessert at their palace.

Kunafah - A sweet unusual pudding enjoyed by our clients


Its traditionally made with akkawi or mozzarella cheese, but I like using mascarpone cheese.

Made with middle eastern pastry called Kataifi its combined with melted butter and pistachio nuts. Using either individual ramekin pots or a large low rectangle oven dish, its lined on the bottom, then filled with mascarpone cheese, honey & orange blossom water.This is then topped with final layer of pastry, until crispy. Finished with a orange blossom and sugar syrup and topped with pistachio & of course rose petals.
