Reian Abdin is a Syrian American born in New York and raised in South Carolina. She is a proud mother of her three little ones. Having a family of her own showed her the importance of preserving cultural identity and she loves doing this through her food, sharing recipes for dishes she grew up with on Instagram and Youtube. She wants others to be able to enjoy traditional Middle Eastern food just as much as she does, and be able to recreate them in an easy way without having to guess ingredients and amounts; through sharing these recipes she hopes to instill the love of a home cooked meal and inspire others to elevate their dishes and try new recipes.
