How did you start your journey?
I grew up in Lebanon, in Beirut, the famous city that offers authentic Lebanese cuisine. As far as I can remember, my whole life revolved around food. My mother and my grandmother were the pillars of the kitchen where I got to see them every single day. The Lebanese and Arab food are a sleeping treasure and I aim to promote it every day through my own menus.
Where is your cuisine inspired from?
It was definitely thanks to the women in my life, especially my mother who encouraged me to join the culinary school at the age of 16. Upon graduation, I joined SummerLand Hotel in Lebanon as a kitchen helper and then climbed the ranks to where I am todayas Corporate Executive Chef at Al Safadi Group of Restaurants.
