What We Are Eating Today: Dokkan Joze w Loze

Dokkan Joze w Loze is a Saudi brand of caramelized nuts that offers a range of fresh and delicious selections presented and served in a simple yet classy way by Wedd Fayez, a passionate young business owner who was encouraged by her family to start the project in 2018.
Dokkan Joze w Loze offers two main caramelized nuts: Pecan and almonds. Fayez said she uses high-quality raw American pecans and almonds.
The loud crunch that the pecans make in your mouth is really satisfying, as is their caramelization with cinnamon or cardamom. The caramelized nuts with cardamom add a Saudi twist to the famous American sweet snack.
Dokkan Joze w Loze also offers Sokkari dates filled with pecan praline — a smooth mixture of ground sweetened nuts. The pecans caramelized with cinnamon are served in beautifully ornamented
colored bowls, jars and boxes, and are suitable for Ramadan gifts and Eid treats.
For the health-conscious, Dokkan Joze w Loze offers two sugar- and salt-free flavors of sweetened and rosemary almonds.
It also offers customized pecan cake, and a Hijazi traditional mix for the famous Islamic hot drink called Talbinah, made mainly of organic healthy ingredients such as honey, milk, barley flour and ground almond.

You can now tour this historical Egyptian church from your living room

DUBAI: Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has announced that it is launching a virtual tour of the centuries-old Abu Serga’s Church in Cairo. The digital tour of the basilica-style monument and its underground labyrinths can be accessed online via https://my.matterport.com, and can also be viewed in virtual reality by way of VR headsets.  

The virtual experience was launched to mark the occasion of the Holy family’s flight into Egypt– it is traditionally believed to have been built on the spot where the Holy Family, Joseph, Mary and the infant Jesus, rested at the end of their journey into Egypt. 

Perhaps its most significant feature is the 10-meters deep crypt where it is said that the Holy family have rested.

One of the oldest Coptic churches in Cairo, the establishment dates back to the 4th century and was named after martyrs saints Sergius and Bacchus. The building is a traditional basilican structure and contains a nave with two side aisles. Twelve grand columns, eleven of which are made from white marble and one made from red granite, stand between the nave and the aisles.

It’s not the first time that Egypt offers virtual tours in the last couple of months. In April, Egypt launched virtual tours of the country’s most famous archeological and heritage sites such as the Menna Tomb in the Theban Necropolis in a bid to encourage people to stay home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
