Igrew up in the suburbs of Paris in a family of Tunisian and Spanish origin in which cooking plays a big role.

The dishes that marked my childhood are numerous: arroz al horno, mloukhiya, fideuà, marka jelbana or tortilla de patatas, I was lucky to grow up with dishes rich in varied flavors.

First starter: Brik with egg, potato with herbs, pine nuts

Morigins bring together two parts of the Mediterranean, which despite their differences, share many points in common.

 

The essence of Tunisian and Spanish cuisine resides on similar pillars: olive oil, fish and seafood, sun-kissed fruits and vegetables!

2nd starter: Pincho moruno (marinated chicken skewer), mashed white beans, 

mojo verde sauce, cashews

when I finished my studies in communication, the desire to dedicate myself to cooking only grew and I therefore decided to devote myself completely to it in 2019.

have always loved to eat, however my love for cooking really developed in adulthood when I took a liking to learning new techniques and recipes.

 grew up in suburban Washington DC, where both my parents worked, and dinner was not exactly a foodie culinary affair. 

  We ate a lot of hamburgers, between slices of bread. I remember making mayonnaise sandwiches and scrambled lots of eggs!!

and crab,  sesame oil

 There was no spice rack at home and the “iceberg” lettuce was considered exotic. If I think about what “Mid-Atlantic” cuisine is, it boils down to what I knew in my youth! 

  I had a career as a television journalist. I traveled the world for my job, eating goat around Dubrovnik, mangoes in Nairobi and a maqluba in Jordan, with cardamom that I still remember. Then, when I moved back to Washington DC and had two daughters, I finally taught myself not only to cook, but also to appreciate the cuisine of the region where I lived.

2nd Starter: Roasted cherries with mozzarella,

pecans, pickled onions

 Covering the states between New York and Virginia, “Mid-Atlantic” means crabs from the Chesapeake Bay, beautiful tomatoes and corn from New Jersey, apples and stone fruits from Virginia and cheese made by farmers Pennsylvania Mennonites.

 

The influence of various migrating waves can be found in the kitchen. I started reading cookbooks in my spare time, saw myself going to three different local farmers markets on Saturday mornings to find out exactly what I was looking for to make soups and salads for delicious potluck meals, relaxed for my neighbors. 

Plat princ!pal : Filet de bar, salsa aux olives et citron,

Dinners went from my family of four, to groups of ten friends, up to twenty for parties. I think what keeps people coming back for dinner is keeping it casual, paying attention to detail, and cooking without hesitation on butter!

 

A happy table is more than food, it's also togetherness - some of the best conversations I remember date back decades between bites of mayonnaise sandwiches with my brothers - but a truly delicious meal is not never disappoints and enchants participants. I also wish to enchant you during my residency at For the Love of Food Paris.
