About BrigitteZ

I’m BrigitteZ.

I’m a thirty-something writer/music nerd/aspiring public relations specialist/self-proclaimed foodie/dachshund lover/social media junkie.

Zayt and Za’atar is a new creative project that I hope will give me the opportunity to do at least some of the following things:

1. Learn how to cook

2. Connect with the memory of my mother

3.  Become a more honest and brave writer

  1. Hi Brigitte, love your new page! You are a wonderful writer and I’m happy you’ve put yourself out there for all of us to read. Thanks for letting me know about your blog. Best of luck tackling those recipes. I’d love to sample the results some day soon. No suggestions on improvements; I think it looks great 🙂


    PS. I love the Eurythmics. Not a bad song to have stuck in my head.

  2. Hi Brigette. What a lovely and informative site. Your recipes, descriptions and photos are great. Our Mediterranean cuisine (I am Lebanese) is certainly the best out there; I am biased of course. It is a mix of fabulous taste, spice, sweetness and variety that I believe cannot be matched by any other cuisine- and you have relayed this aspect beautifully.

    Keep up the good work and I will definately spread the word for your site.

  3. What can I say! I LOVE Zayt and Zaater! What a brilliant concept! This is a book. I mean it! You have all the ingredients for beautiful book. Proud of you, Bridgitte. Much love, Yasser

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this Yasser! Your support means a great deal to me. I hope you’ll teach me a few dishes while you are in town, too!!

  4. Brigitte – As I am searching for recipes, I stumbled upon your blog. I’ve read through this, and I absolutely love your blog.
    I always call home to ask how to make something but now I can access your recipes. Can’t wait to prepare some of the dishes. I remember your mom was an amazing cook 🙂 I will let you know how it turns out.

    1. Thank you, Cindy! I’m so glad you stumble across this and found it helpful! I miss cooking and really need to get back to it. I hope they come out as well for you as they have for me over the last couple of years. I can’t wait to hear how it goes!

  5. hi Brigitte, am from Betounia, Ramallah too and I live in Houston too…I like you blog…you have also a wonderful sense of humour…but I cant find recent blogs..did you stop blogging or what?
    When I read about Mishat, I remembered my late grand father , it was his favorite meal…whenver my Teta makes Zahra bilaban, cauliflower in cooked yogurt, she would save some and make Meshat for him..she was soo caring even after marrying the same man for over 45 years with Mashallah 10 kids…that makes me wonder, did my parents and my grand parents appreicate love more than us who claim that we are more educated, enjoy hi tech in everything….
