Last Saturday 25 April, our CEO, Matteo Ressa and COO, Gaurav Gandhi, for the chef streaming chats sat down with two members of our Chef team to chat about the culture, food and traditions they observe during Ramadan. Let’s see what they shared!
Many of you might already know that Ramadan is the month where certain religions don’t eat food during the day. But after working on our first Chef Streaming Chat, I learned that there is a lot more to this religious holiday, which is observed by over 1 billion people worldwide.
A few facts
- Ramadan is the ninth month on the Islamic calendar
- It started on April 23 this year
- Ramadan starts with the sighting of a new moon and confirmed by authorities in different countries
- The religious holidays lasts 30 days in 2020
- Fasting is done by practitioners throughout the month
- Ramadan ends with Id al Fitr – a day of feasting

Food Connects People
A common theme throughout our Chef Streaming Chat was that food is a medium of love that connects people, breaks down barriers and provides the fuel to celebrate and rejoice with family. I know that I am keen to learn more, so if you are like me, think about booking a class with either Chef Hira or Chef Shery and learn how to cook some popular Pakistani and Egyptian treats. Be sure to ask for Iftar dishes, as the food selection looks more varied and diversified compared to the Suhoor health-filled snacks and drinks.
