“As long as I can remember my life has revolved around food. Growing up in Paris I was spoiled with the best the culinary world had to offer, and then came home to my mother's loving Middle Eastern cookery. When I moved to New York I encountered even more enticing and mouthwatering dishes, and today I live in Dubai, an exciting melting pot of cultures and cuisines. Throughout my life food has not just been food, it has been the one constant, the one thing that connects both my worlds, the East and the West.”
