Qatayef - Egypt
Qatayef is a special dessert, sometimes called Arabic pancakes


Hi.. I am Hicham, an Egyptian architect living in Alexandria.

Qatayef is a special dessert commonly served during Ramadan. It is certainly delicious.. But the most exciting is the way it is made..

Because qatayef is seasonal.. The baker puts his tools in the street in front of pedestrians who gather in front of him, especially the children, to enjoy the unique way of making and creativity in order, which is linked to the distinctive Arab patterns, which I was keen to show in the background.
