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

My story with food and flavors is a story of passion, chemistry and constant exploration. Ever since I was a little boy, my favorite place was my mother's kitchen; I used to spend hours observing her cook, and mix ingredients and as I look back, I feel blessed for my curiosity, which made me fall in love with the art of cooking. Indeed, I look at every dish as a blank canvas, where amazing ingredients are mixed in harmony to create a masterpiece. My passion and curiosity didn't stop there, and I started asking old people about traditional authentic Lebanese dishes, and started to add my own touch to them. It started as a fun hobby, but when everyone around me tasted my newborn dishes and loved them, I knew that I had to take my passion into another level. I took it seriously without taking myself seriously! Being a creative chef isn't my profession, it's my passion, it's an integral part of me. I cook for the love of food, for the love of creativity.

How did the Chef learn how to cook and what is his story?

Ever since I was very young, I always had interest for cooking, decorating tables and Etiquette. As I grew older, my passion for cooking built up into a huge empire where I learned to challenge myself by getting to know more and more about it. I began to learn that food wasn’t only about taste but it’s about being an artist with what you eat.
