• Fatafeat invites everyone to come together as a family and enjoy this ‘Ramadan at home with Fatafeat’
  • Specially crafted programming inspires families to create delicious Iftar and Suhoor meals, whilst staying home and staying safe

April 2020; Doha, QATAR: Fatafeat is inviting families to help create their very own ‘home of Arabic cooking’ this Ramadan, following results from a survey which highlighted the desire for cooking to be more of a family activity.

The survey, which involved residents across Qatar, indicated that a better knowledge of recipes (39 percent), and having their families involved in the process (35 percent), would inspire them to cook more.

Whilst more than a third (31 percent) admit to having little or no skills in the kitchen, almost half (43 percent) of respondents claim that their cooking knowledge comes from being taught by family members.

In response to this, in line with the government’s directives to stay home and stay safe, Fatafeat is launching an array of specially crafted programmes encouraging collaborative home cooking and home celebration this Ramadan.

Families and individuals can experience ‘Ramadan at home with Fatafeat’ as everyone continues to stay safe and stay home, with brand-new seasons of Ramadan favourites, such as Matbakh Manal Alalem and Shu Biyheb Al Orf.

Commenting on the results, Henry Windridge, Head of Brand, Discovery MEA, said: “This Ramadan will be very different for those who are used to gathering with extended family and friends during the Holy Month; however, Ramadan can still very much be celebrated within the home environment, with Fatafeat providing delicious dining inspiration. With so many people expressing their desire to cook together as a family more often, this Ramadan in particular presents an ideal opportunity to not only learn a new skill, but to also spend additional quality time together enjoying a fun and creative activity and creating lifelong memories.”

Fatafeat’s Ramadan line-up features the ever-popular Chef Manal and Chef Orfali sharing some of their most popular, heart-warming dishes for creating Ramadan feasts, inspiring even novice chefs to create delicious Iftar and Suhoor meals.
