As hilarious as this incident is, it may not be time to “grill” Dua Lipa just yet. In April 2020, the star joined millions of others in attempting to cook during the COVID-19 lockdown. As revealed in an Instagram post, Dua Lipa learned to cook a Palestinian Maeloubah (a rice-based dish with lamb shoulder and yogurt salad) by following a recipe from Anwar Hadid’s father, Mohamed Hadid. This prompted Hadid to share his recipe on Instagram.

Lipa also asserts that she enjoys culinary activities. “I love cooking and being surrounded by my favorite people,” she said in an interview with Refinery29. “With all the running around I do for work, it’s nice to come home, slow down, and connect with the food that nourishes my body and life.”
She also has a taste for Albanian food. In an interview with “First We Feast,” she reveals her favorite dish is spinach pita. “It’s a pastry with spinach and cheese, and it’s delicious,” she says. Lipa’s also a fan of sujuk, a spicy fermented sausage, and ajvar, a paste made from roasted red pepper.
