Taking over our kitchen for October are JUMA Kitchen who are on a mission to bring Iraqi food to the masses. Trust us, you are going to LOVE the food that these guys magic up!
“JUMA Kitchen was established in 2012. The head chef & founder, Philip Juma, offers a unique & talented approach which has changed the way people perceive & experience Iraqi cuisine.
As an English-Irish-Iraqi, Philip has been influenced by both Middle Eastern & modern-European cuisine throughout his upbringing & this is reflected throughout his style of cooking today. Having worked in the finance world for the majority of his early twenties, Philip spent his weekends fuelling his passion of food by working in & out of London kitchens. Names include French & Grace, Ben’s Canteen, Wild Game Co, Ishbilia, The Savoy, MAZE & most recently Ottolenghi’s, NOPI.
Philip is determined to put Iraqi cuisine on the map in London, & as demonstrated by previous JUMA Kitchen, sell out pop-ups; his fortnightly column for the London Evening Standard; & recent food demonstrations at London Borough Market, the popularity of Iraqi food is showing no signs of slowing…”
