The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

About this event

Shakshuka is a classic North African and Middle Eastern dish and one that’s eaten for breakfast, brunch, or any meal of the day! The eggs are simmered in a warmly flavoured tomato sauce with avocado salsa. We’ll make cheddar scones with herb whipped butter to round out this versatile tasty meal.

Join chef Bruce Wood for this cooking demonstration. Registrants will receive an email with the ingredients before the class so that they can cook along with Bruce. They will receive the recipe following the class.

At age 17, Bruce Wood remembers savouring a spicy bowl of authentic Jamaican goat curry and, in his words, “seeing the world in colour.” It was the first step on a path that led to a career as a chef that has spanned 35 years, many kitchens, farms & classrooms, and a life spent sharing his passion and love for local, seasonal and sustainable food.

Bruce is now working as a consultant, running classes in people’s homes, writing recipes for companies like Beau’s All Natural Brewery and Bryson farms appearing on stage and in the kitchens at food festivals & special events. He can be reached on Facebook at Bruce Wood Culinary Consulting.
