Ramadan is a time of humility, modesty and graciousness, but if we're all being completely honest with ourselves, it's also about guzzling down the kind of wholesome, lavish food that only mama can make –something that revolutionary online cooking community, Yumamia, understands all too well.
Since launching in March 2014, Yumamia has been a very unique and very cool platform for chefs across Cairo to share the gastronomic skills with the rest of the city – yes, it gives you the ability to order some truly authentic homemade meals at a few clicks of their website.
But in the last two years, Yumamia has become a different beast, offering a four-hour express menu that will ensure that you'll be feasting like a sultan in no time and a 24 hour menu catering menu, as well as a new half-cooked and frozen foods menu – all with a minimum order of just 100LE.
It's all made very simple – here's how it works:
Step One: Browse the menu and start salivating.
Step Two: Choose what you heart (and tummy) desires, keeping in mind that we're approaching beach season and you need to take it easy.
Step Three: Sit back and wait for one of the many Yumamia cooks to accept the order.
From there on, you're sailing as the food is delivered to your doorstep and the set-up is perfect for Ramadan and those that inevitably won't have the time to the type of grand feast that the month demands. In addition, Yumamia has also introduced a special menu with special Ramadan value packages, offering a mix of half-and-uncooked foods, ranging from shish tawouk and béchamel pasta, to sambousek and kobeba. The cherry on top of all this is the upcoming return of the desserts menu, offering a whole range of creative homemade desserts and sweets – an essential element of Ramadan dining.
