Kholood Was Born to Make Delicious Food – Nablus, Palestine
Kholood is from Nablus, Palestine and is passionate about cooking. She likes to cook for her extended family whenever she feels sad and turns to cooking as a form of therapy. Kholood discovered her cooking skills after her husband fell ill as a way to find mental relief and bring in more income for her family of 5 children.
“I spend hours looking at new recipes. What I enjoy most is experimenting with fresh seasonal spices and using ingredients that are available at the local market.”– Kholood
People in her community know about her delicious food from social media. Kholood uses Facebook to advertise her culinary work.
“I took a certificate course to become a professional sous-chef in cooking.”– Kholood
Thanks to Anera’s Women Can program, funded by Islamic Relief USA, Kholood now has new professional kitchen appliances. Before, she was worried about taking large food orders because of her inadequate appliances and the small size of her home kitchen. Now she has all the tools and space she needs and is able to help her friends sell their produce.
