Heba Saleh, our friend from MidEATS, is an Egyptian-American who spent her childhood in Bahrain and Egypt, and moved to the States as a teenager. The memory of freshly baked pita bread from the corner furn (‘bakery’) next to her grandparents’ house in Heliopolis has been forever etched in her mind. Her love for food has only grown over the years, and she has cooked many Middle Eastern specialties. Heba’s food philosophy is simple: she believes food should be eaten in its most natural and wholesome state.
