My passion for cooking started from the youngest age. I inherited the rich culture of Moroccan cuisine from my mother who learned it from my grandmother. Rich in flavor, sensual, and vivid in color and texture, Moroccan cuisine owes its subtlety to diverse sources: Mesopotamian, Mediterranean, Berber, and Andalusian. My earliest memories are from inside the kitchen where I observed their artistry and developed a refined repertoire of Pastilla, Tanjia, Harrira, Cous Cous, and Rafissa. 

I began my formal culinary training as a teenager when my family moved to Marrakech. In my 20s, I managed a historical Palace Restaurant which is considered to be one of the most beautiful examples of civil architecture in the imperial city of Marrakech, showcasing the work of the most skilled artisans of Fez and Marrakech. It was within these magic walls that I managed every detail of the restaurant, cooking, oversaw the interior design and presentation of the meals, training a staff of over forty people.

At the table no matter who the guest is, cooking and sharing my food and culture is the ultimate form of expression for me. Down to every ingredient, no detail is too small. As an artist, I seek not only to provide unique tastes, but an immersive experience of vibrant color, exciting smells, good music, and energising conversations. 

This is about more than the tastes, flavours and textures. This is about finding home around a shared table through the smiling faces of friends old and new. 

 Now I am bringing these culinary-based experiences to the heart of Warsaw retaining my roots in Morocco. This fusion of worlds blends together around the table where we are all human and enjoy the same things. Discover Moroccan gastronomy, known as one of the most exquisite and generous cuisines in the world.
