Papyrus offers Egyptian vegetarian food based on deliciously-authentic and traditional recipes. Egyptians have a rich agricultural history that dates back thousands of years. That deep connection to the land, the abundance of fresh ingredients, and their love for good food allowed Egyptians to explore and perfect vegetarian food over the ages.
At Papyrus, we feel that Egyptian vegetarian food is more relevant today than ever, because it’s delicious, healthy, and environmentally sensible. From transforming the humble bean into a rich staple food to creating distinct flavours and combinations of savoury and fresh ingredients, Egyptian vegetarian food is renowned for its flavours, texture, and use of fresh herbs.
Egypt was at the crossroads of trade, and throughout its history, welcomed people from other cultures who brought along exotic cooking ingredients and preparation techniques.
Fine desserts made with mastic and pistachios were surely the outcome of an open society that welcomed people from Europe and the Levant to call Egypt their home.
