Speaker Bio: Heifa Odeh
Salam! I’m Heifa and I’m so excited you’re here!
I’m a first-generation Palestinian American raised in NJ but now calls Chicago home. I am the founder, recipe developer, and food photographer behind Fufu’s Kitchen. And if you are wondering, Fufu is my nickname-it just stuck!
Growing up in a Middle Eastern household, our day was often centered around food, specifically traditional Arab cuisine. I loved watching my mom in the kitchen, but she never had proper measurements for her recipes. After moving, I missed her cooking and took it upon myself to learn, preserve, and document the dishes I loved so much. And that is how this blog was born.
Fast forward a few years, and I am also the cookbook author of Dine in Palestine, a collection of 60 recipes from my family to your table.
