About Feed The Malik

Hi, my name is Anela Malik!


In addition to my love for exploring food, travel, recipes, and life (with a little bit of sass), I'm an Arabic speaker, former diplomat, and wife.


I started Feed The Malik as a passion project while living in Amman, Jordan. I was new to the city and started pushing myself to get out of the expatriate bubble, phone in hand. To my surprise, my blog prompted friends who had never considered traveling to the Middle East to visit and explore alongside me.


I learned a valuable lesson then – I could tell complex, compelling, diverse stories that moved and connected people. I have since left Jordan, but that lesson guides Feed The Malik to this day.


I'm now based in Northwest Arkansas and my focus has expanded to encompass food, travel, and beyond. Here on Feed The Malik I continue to share my own work, as well as work from incredible guest contributors.
