Summary of where the Chef’s cuisine is inspired from and how he/she goes about expressing it

My father is my biggest source of inspiration when it comes to the culinary world. He taught me a lot. I used to follow the beautiful aromas coming out of the kitchen when he cooked, and that was when I acknowledged my real passion, cooking!

I grew up watching my dad cooking for me special things, he is an amateur but high skilled, I learned the basics from him. I'm a current student at the USEK Kaslik University which is in partnership with Le cordon Bleu Paris, to continue my career.
