Please join us in welcoming Jawhara Quitefan who will lead us in preparing traditional Arabic dishes. Jawhara is a mother and a student pursuing her degree in Neuroscience. She is also an entrepreneur and manages North America Construction Service along with her husband. She will be preparing makloba (Chicken and rice with layered cauliflower and eggplant cooked and then flipped) and laban ma kyar (greek yogurt and cucumber salad). We will also have vegetarian version of the makloba available. All items will be halal.

Jawhara will be accompanied by her mother Rita Iqtaifan. Rita was born in Columbia (South America). She came to the US in 1992. Her father is Palestinian and taught her how to cook. She has 7 kids and 3 of them are special needs.
