As some of you know, Hungry Husband and I are in the midst of a great transition for work. Right now we are living in a guest flat, and I profiled the kitchen for you a few weeks ago. Over the next indeterminable period of time we will be visiting a few different cities throughout the Middle East, meaning that hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to view and/or cook in some different kitchens as well as sample some new cuisines. I’ll bring you along as much as possible through my new “Guest Kitchen” series.
Our first trip was a little over a week ago. We went Over The River and stayed in a guesthouse. Because it was still Ramadan, we did not eat out at any restaurants (most of them were closed until the evening, by which point we were far too tired to go out), so although I am sure there are some specialties particular to that city, we didn’t taste any of them. I did, however, get a few pictures of the kitchen in the guesthouse where we stayed. It was pretty top notch in terms of equipment (except for knives—pathetically dull), and even had a dishwasher, which we did not use. I would put this kitchen in the top 10% of kitchens I have seen throughout the Middle East in terms of its creature comforts.
