About Me

Nice to meet you!

Salam, and welcome to my food & lifestyle blog. I am Susan, the woman behind the posts and photographs, and I am writing with my oriental soul about food, travel, and lifestyle. People ask me what Labsal means. Labsal is a German word, and here you will find some synonyms for Labsal: savor, pleasure, strengthening, benefit, relaxation, refreshment, and comfort. So Labsalliebe reflects my love for savor and enjoyment in my life.

I am a curly-headed child of two cultures, a multiracial German-Persian Girl. My mother is German, and my father is Persian (Neem-Rooni). The Orient is my home, and I would like to take you to the Persian, Oriental colorful cuisine, and Levant cuisine with my blog. I was born in Tehran and grew up there until I was 14. I now live for over 40 years in Germany and work as a naturopath in my practice for 18 years. I am a mother of three wonderful children who inspired me to live a conscious life. Sustainability, mindfulness, and respect for people and our earth are important to me. In our kitchen, we cook, laugh, dance, and celebrate.

I love to cook fresh, healthy, organic, seasonal, and local food. I buy most of the time organic stuff at organic markets.


Sharbat-e Rivas - persische Rhababer Limonade Labsalliebe



♥ On my Blog, you find mainly recipes from Persian cuisine. Sometimes you also find recipes from Levantine cuisine from the Middle East, the Orient, and Morocco. For us Persians, every food has a property that either heats up or cools down the body and mind. When cooking, according to the principles of Unani medicine, we are careful to maintain the balance between hot and cold to stay physically and mentally healthy. In most recipes, I also write about whether they have a cooling or warming effect on our bodies.
