Spice Spoon Short Film

Hello lovelies, and welcome to my new Spice Spoon website. Thank you for visiting and for your encouragement during the redesign period. I am utterly elated to finally be able to interact with all of you again, and share this visual story about my cookery philosophy. I would adore to hear your reactions. Thank you for watching, and don’t forget to have a peek at my new home page!

Please refer to my Acknowledgements page for details on the wonderful film production team and website designer I worked with to make this project possible.

I plan to do a blog post on the redesign process and the ‘making of the Spice Spoon short film’. You’ll also get the recipe for the pudding soon.



  1. Shayma, it’s BEAUTIFUL – the site and the film. Congrats on the new look – looking forward to reading more!

  2. S, the site is gorgeous and brilliant — a perfect representation of you! I find its underlying message of community and tradition very moving. One tiny glitch: the link to the film on your about page does not seem to be working. As I peruse more, I’ll let you know if I see anything else. For now, warmest congratulations! xo

  4. shayma, so good to have you back! LOVE the video, it’s simple and beautiful and i can’t wait for that orange-infused shahi tukray recipe, one of my favouritest things to eat from home as well. the portraits are also stunning, especially the one in which you’re wearing the big silver necklace – haseen. hugs from madrid!

    • Manal, promise to post it soon – this is the best season to have it, when it is cold and you need something comforting. I miss your writing, Manal! Thanks and many more hugs back to you x s

  8. Can’t say anything besides WOW
    You forgot to mention BEAUTY in your list of accomplishments; of course, this one is GOD-bestowed, but spectacular.
    The new site is so ELEGANT
    It makes Martha Steward look too plebeian! 🙁

    Keep going girl. You are definitely going places…

  9. Wow!! I must say wow! It’s wonderful. the narration is perfect. I would love to have the recipe of that bread pudding. It looks delicious. Congrats!!!

    • Soma, lovely lady, thanks for visiting. I will post that recipe very soon. I keep changing the type and amount of honey that goes into the custard – so I need to do some recipe testing again, soonest x

      • Hoping that I would see the recipe on your blog, I came back to check the thread (although I would have gotten the notification if you did post it). 🙁 Can I please get the recipe before Christmas? Please! Thanks!
