How did you start your journey?
I use ingredients of Lebanon and the Levant countries to reinvent a generous, tasty and pleasurable cuisine. Cooking for others is sharing geography, history and passion. Pairing the right wines and drinks, serving with the right tempo transforms a meal in a unique experience, one of The moments of a lifetime.
Where is your cuisine inspired from?
I loved cooking since I was a kid. I learned in the kitchens of my mom, aunts and grandma.... When I was a lawyer, I used to cook, organise diners, search for the best ingredients, until I understood I had to become a chef....
