Bethany Kehdy is a Lebanese-American food writer and presenter. Hailed by Yotam Ottolenghi as 'A new champion of Middle Eastern food', her debut cookbook, The Jewelled Kitchen, was selected as one of the notable cookbooks of 2013 by The New York Times. Highlighted by Monocle Magazine as one of four Mediterranean ambassadors, representing Lebanon, her work on promoting Lebanon's food tourism to the world continues, via her food tour company Taste Lebanon as well as her consultancy work with the Ministry of Tourism. Her Middle Eastern inspired London supper-clubs have regularly sold-out. After 15 years of living abroad, 10 of which were in the UK, Bethany has returned to Beirut where she also runs Mawsam, her seasonal-inspired supper club.
