Model, Gigi Hadid has shared her favourite Palestinian foods - and she's got good taste!
The part-Palestinian model said on Twitter that kibbeh with labneh and tabbouleh is a go-to of hers. She also added that she loves eggs with zaatar for breakfast. The conversation was part of a #askGigi Q&A.
Gigi’s revelation caused a stir on Twitter, as some fans pointed out that dishes like ‘tabbouleh’ are actually part of Lebanese cuisine, not Palestinian.
However, the 24-year-old shot back, saying: “To every1 saying all of these foods are Lebanese only, My dad was born in Palestine in ‘48, where his family lived for many generations before that & ate these foods their entire lives. B4 borders & ownership of land, the region’s dishes & ingredients were always the same”
“I should also add that my family and I support many family owned Lebanese restaurants to enjoy the food we all love !!!!!”
