Mary (or Maryam, both names work) has a background in Languages and Linguistics. She loves sharing bits of her life, educational facts and food recipes on all of her social media. She was born and raised in both the U.S. and the U.K. but is originally from Jordan, so most of the foods she shares are fusion foods, reflecting the different cultures she grew up with. You’ll always find her in the kitchen, fusing ingredients and blending them to make a delicious dish.
