Before I fell in love with the culinary arts I had been practicing the healing arts. I received my masters degree in Oriental medicine and acupuncture in 1993. After years of practice I decided to go into the culinary arts and explore my love and passion for food. Knowing early on that you can heal through food I decided to explore my background and upbringing and use what has been passed down in my family to make beautiful dishes demystifying middle eastern food for the modern palate. In 2003 I sold my medical practice and started opening restaurants my first one in Beverly Hills was called Pizza Rustica. In 2011 I got on to the Food Network with my first shower appearance on Food Network Star 10 years and over 20 shows later, I am now working on projects for streaming and have my first book slated for summer 2022. Along the way I partnered with real housewives star Lisa Vanderpump on two of her projects in West Hollywood pump lounge and Tomtom bar and lounge. I currently work as a culinary consultant in the US and I am so excited to have you here with me on this journey. Let’s explore!
