My name is “Dimah” (pronounce Dee-ma) (can be written Deemah, Deema, Dima), “Dimah” is an Arabic name means “Rain that continues for long time without thunder and lightening”.
I started blogging in February, 2009. I chose the name “Orange Blossom Water” because orange blossom water is unique, special, and wonderful. Also for me orange blossom water connects the Middle East to the other countries in the world, because it is an important ingredient in our cuisine, and has become so popular all over the world. “Maa Al-Zaher”/ “Ma Zaher” is the Arabic word for “orange blossom water”.
Most of my posts are about Syrian cuisine, I’m sharing with you dishes and techniques that you will never find in cookbooks, because Syrians learn recipes from their mothers and grandmothers not from books or chefs.
