A Qatari lady who has perfected the art of combining the right type of condiments in the right quantities is on the verge of becoming an international celebrity, says a report published in a local Arabic daily. Sheikha al-Fadil set out initially in 2002 on a small scale by preparing tasty pickles and condiments that are popularly used in the Gulf cuisine. She had a limited but steady success in the beginning. However with perseverance and ingenuity she has now to her credit a range of products including 30 varieties of condiment mixtures and pickles, three types of coffee and 12 dairy products besides perfumes. She is now the proud manager of a small-scale industry. Her products are now widely sold in all the hypermarkets in Qatar. Sheikha al-Fadil has been spotted by an Italian entrepreneur who happened to be in town during the ‘Made in Qatar’ exhibition. He tasted her recipes and took an immediate liking for them and has offered to market her products in Italy and in many other European countries.
