The Malawah Bar
About The Malawah Bar:
The Malawah Bar is a Yemenite food delivery and catering service in Silicon Valley, California, owned by Doreet, Oreet’s twin sister.
“I am American born first and foremost, but when I look in the mirror I can’t help but see a Yemenite-Israeli as well.” Her parents arrived in New York after the Six-Day War, with their eldest daughter. Soon after, and to make ends meet, their father set up a boat business on Long Island. But that in no way altered their ability to keep the traditional customs of the old country alive. Doreet remembers learning to prepare traditional Yemenite dishes as a little girl. She would look forward to the Sabbath and holiday meals, standing attentively alongside her mother as they together prepared soups and kebabs, Jachnun and Ma’lawah. “Even then I sensed how togetherness was created through cooking and baking — that our family’s values were literally folded into the food! ” The Malawah Bar
Doreet will join us for Shoot The Shimmy on Wednesday, June 14 live on our Facebook Page, no registration required.
