How did you start your journey?

I worked in the banking sector for 24 years. I don't remember how I went into the kitchen and found myself diving into a different world of smells, colours and perfumes. All of a sudden I discovered the "AHA" thing and became passionate about cooking. Trying new tastes and dishes, learning the traditional Lebanese cuisine and digging into my mum's family recipes. My passion led me to Paris where I used to do workshops and spread the Lebanese Cuisine that is known to be very tasty and healthy.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

I started learning through my mother's recipes all the way to workshops, TV programs and finally one year training in Paris with the Top Chef David Fricaud.
