Welcome to the Sudanese Kitchen

Hello, I’m Omer, the son of Sudanese doctors who emigrated to the UK. I spent my first 7 years living in Khartoum, capital city of the Sudan (North). After which, my parents, two brothers and I moved to the UK, where I’ve lived ever since, yet return to the Sudan for yearly visits.

Over the past couple of years I’ve been compiling Sudanese recipes, facts and stories to aid cultural understanding of our all too often misjudged country. The Sudanese Kitchen is a cookbook project with my objective, first hand version of events about our country and its food. Welcome and enjoy!

This project has been successfully crowdfunded by 82 wonderful humans. Big thanks to each and every one of you, I’m going to be enjoying spending your hard earned money to make this project come to life. Watch this space…
