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

I was born to a family of foodies and baking enthusiasts with my mom, who owned a restaurant, being at the helm of our gastronomical experiences. Groomed myself in the kitchen by joining hotels until I achieved a full-fledge executive chef patisserie position. Side by side, I studied in various culinary schools in the USA (French Culinary Institute, Notter School) and received training from esteemed leaders in French patisserie such as Lenotre and Ecole Valrhona. Up to this day, I have coached chefs and enthusiasts and assisted new and existing businesses in the Gulf region.
