Taking to Instagram, the father of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid shared that he had contributed to the book, which was co-authored by Farrah Abuasad and Lama Bazzari, by sharing two recipes that have been passed down from his mother.

“Two of my recipes in this book I learned from My mother that she learned from her mother Princess Khairya (khair) DAHER Al Omer Hadid she was married in 1941 to my father Anwar Mohamed Hadid,” he said.
