Get cooking this Ramadan

Known to be the most important month in the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is spent fasting from dawn to sunset, abstaining from all food or drink, including water.

Muslims take this opportunity to grow in spirituality and act charitably.

Each fast is broken by eating a date, followed by a table adorned with delectable dishes, full of flavours such as Biriyanis, Pilaus and sweet treats. This is a significant time to appreciate with family and friends, bringing everyone together at one table.

What is Suhoor? (also known as Sehri)

This is the first meal of the day to be consumed before sunrise, before the day of fasting starts. Typical meals include puddings, yoghurts, fruit and nuts to help keep fuller though out the day.

What is Iftar?

This meal is served at the end of the day during Ramadan. This includes a widespread feast of meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes served to bring loved ones closer on one table. They celebrate the achievement of fasting another day, displaying acts of kindness and patience.
