Born and raised in Lebanon. Food plays a big role in our culture, it kept our families and friends together and our minds off the long civil war. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my mother watching and absorbing her magic with food, anything she touches or breathes on is instantly delicious! I host a cooking show on the public access station and youtube about Middle Eastern and North African cuisine, I hope to be discovered by a network soon. I love to cook, eat from all over the world and learn the different cuisine and traditions that each country offers. I love to garden, paint, travel and drink wine. I hope you enjoy my recipes...
