What can you tell us about your culinary journey?
I have been working for a long time, seeking to perfect my craft. I am passionate about what I do and never and always try to work harder in order to better myself.
How has your Lebanese heritage impacted your craft?
My desserts are inspired by my mother; she is a great cook and used to prepare a different dessert every day, each better than the other. I’ve learned the technique of baking from her.
What defines a great pastry chef?
Passion guides a chef; the more passion there is, the better the chef has the better he is. A good sense of organization is also important. My motto in life is to be strong and passionate.
Do you have any future plans you can share with us?
I am currently opening three concepts in Mexico. I have so many plans, and I will keep working passionately, waking up every day motivated to do my best, as I consider being a pastry chef more of a hobby than a job.
