What experience most defined your decision and desire to get into the food industry?
I would visit restaurants and get super excited about what can be added to a dish or taken away from it to enhance it.
Where is your favorite place to shop for food and ingredients in Kuwait?
I love to shop at stores like Sultan or Dean & Deluca because you can take your time and ask about every detail of the product. Having kids does that to you!
What food most reminds you of your mother’s house, and why?
Good ‘Ol Yakhne or any red-based sauce – the marrying of garlic and onions has a very sentimental smell for me.
When you seek consultancy advice where do you go and why?
I have a pool of very talented individuals ranging in experience/age/gender of which I often bounce ideas off of or delegate to depending on the task at hand. They are usually former colleagues and seniors, even moms who are highly qualified but can’t leave the house.
Who would you like to have afternoon tea with?
Oprah, her perspective on life is honest and full circled, I feel. Her motivational power is unmatched.
If you were to leave Kuwait and could take only one kitchen gadget with you, what would it be?
My blender. If all else fails, make a sauce!
