My journey began with a deep appreciation for Lebanese heritage. I have always embraced my cultural identity and let it shine through my culinary creations. My mother, the founder of Em Sherif – Mireille has always been a perpetual source of inspiration to me, rooting me in the true essence of Lebanese home cooking. This has fueled my journey and remains an anchor in my career. Authenticity radiates from beautiful, lived experiences and I believe this shines through at Em Sherif.
