From yogurt-based cooking and sweets, to vegan and vegetarian cuisine, and including the most important meal of the day in and out of the Arab world -- breakfast -- the UAE based anonymous cook Aseel Arabia has shared some of her delicious recipes and techniques on learning site Udemy. There are nine courses in total being offered at the moment, each no more than 45 minutes long and at a special, discounted price.
Her bio states that "Chef Aseel has cooked for over 40 years for private clients including royalty, dukes and duchesses. Revered as a specialist in Arab cuisine, she takes her influence from all over the region having lived in the Gulf Arab states, the Levantine Arab states and the African Arab states throughout her lifetime."
The Cooking Arabic food series teaches Arabic style cooking prepared in different Arab nations across the region. These short but efficient lectures are designed to allow the students to prepare meals in a short and concise period of time with basic skills.
When MIME reached out to her for a comment, Chef Aseel replied, "Arabic food brings people together, especially during Ramadan. It is the heart and soul of our culture." There is also no better time to learn how to cook it than now, as the courses are offered in English, complete with easy to follow how-to videos and instructions.
