Hamdy's Hometown

Market Stop, Egyptian Feast, and Family

Hamdy learned to cook with his mom and grandmother. Family is the heart of Egyptian culture. Families build their homes and lives together.

99.6 percent of the 92 million people in Egypt are native Egyptians. The traditional Egyptian family unit includes grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws and close relations. You will see many homes that are building up to accommodate their growing families. Shopping at the market or raising your own food is the way of life for Egyptians. Egypt, since the days of the Pharaohs, has always been an agricultural society.
