About Meezan Kitchen
Hi, I’m Layla
The Founder of Meezan Kitchen! I am first generation Palestinian born and raised in Chicago. Growing up with my amazing parents and 3 siblings, our world revolved around family dinners and unbelievable dessert spreads. Before charcuterie, dessert tables, and Pinterest worthy photos were a thing, my Mom was way ahead of her time. Not only teaching us authentic recipes and methods, she taught us your guests eat with their eyes before their mouth. Everything we bake and do doesn’t just taste amazing but has to look flawless. Thank you mom for those high standards!
In 2010, I got married and moved from Chicago to the Capital District, continuing my Corporate journey in finance, banking and leadership. After having our kids and working in the corporate world for over 12 years, I knew it was time to continue our Family business and expand to Upstate New York.
My Family has been fortunate enough to extend our kitchen to our customers for over 15 years. Whether it was owning restaurants or supplying local stores with our products, we have been dedicated to providing the highest quality every time.
Located in Niskayuna, NY, we have a licensed commercial kitcen producing hand crafted delicacies for everyone to enjoy. Our products have Palestinian, Egyptian and overall Middle Eastern inspiration. We love to take classical desserts, perfect them and add our spin.
