Some of the most typical and tasty breakfast foods are presented on this tray. Ofcourse, in Egypt, we have a wide variety of breakfast cuisine, which I couldn’t recreate ALL on one tray. :) Some of the items seen are Eish balady (Egyptian flatbread), Gibna rumi (sharp cheese), Zaytoun (olives), slices of onion, slices of cucumber, dill pickles, pickle carrots, omelet, sliced boiled egg (the spice ontop is actually cinnamon), Fool medammis (broad beans), Kofta (Egyptian meatballs with sesame seeds). Everything on this list including the two dishes (both are hand painted) which the food is sitting on are made with fondant. The two herbs (Basil ontop of the Kofta/Fool medammis and the Dill leaf ontop of the sliced egg) are made with wafer paper.
Thank you for looking — Alf Hanna (colloquial Arabic meaning ‘have a nice meal’….it literally means ‘a thousand delights’ :) but simply put Bon Appétit!).
