The sweet flavour of teamwork

More than 20 experts from Jordan and abroad, regular contributors to Family Flavours, gathered virtually this month to kick off a new round of partnerships in 2021. Al Marji’ Publications delivered a gift box filled with cake pops to experts, complimentary from its partner, The Cake Shop, to sweeten the social event even more.

During the one hour virtual meetup, the experts were introduced to newcomers Certified Money Coach Christeen Haddadin and Food Writer Sarah Ajour and bid goodbye to longtime contributor Pharmacist Dr Ruba Al Far. Experts also shared professional updates and gave everyone a sneak peek into what they are working on for Family Flavours for the next 12 months.


When bitter is better!

Al Marji’ Publications has partnered up with Al Yaqoota, discovering the taste and health benefits bottled up in every serving of their extra virgin olive oil.


Did you know, for example, that extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), by its very nature, has a bitter taste on account of the green olives used to make it? To know if you are getting the purest extra virgin olive oil, with plenty of natural good anti-inflammatory agents, then you’ll get a strong stinging aftertaste at the back of your throat when you taste it straight from the bottle.


Al Yaqoota’s cold-pressed, unblended extra virgin olive oil comes from Palestinian trees whose saplings were planted in northern Jordan in the late 1940s. The olive oil has undergone the least processing to preserve freshness, aroma, taste and nutritional value. To book a tour of the farm or learn more, visit
