What’s your first memory of your love for cooking?
This whole journey started when I was 11 watching my mom preparing colorful & delicious recipes that are aesthetically appealing made me interested in this field. The dish that I first made was a classic Palestinian dish called “Musakhan” that I learned from my mom & I remember that day when everyone loved this dish & entering the kitchen became a part of me!
When did you know you wanted to be a Chef?
After graduating from high school I wanted to join a culinary school but when I proposed the idea to my family it faced an instant rejection, so my parents told me to pursue my passion after graduating from a university & that’s exactly what I did. I graduated from AUS with a bachelor’s degree in mass communication then joined a culinary school & got my diplomas in both hot kitchen & pastry.

Being an Instagram influencer chef made me gain more connections with people & their continuous support & love are what motivates me to continue. Inspiring people to enter the kitchen & be creative makes me super happy & proud and their remakes of my recipes that I absolutely love the most.
