I’m a third-generation Lebanese, born and raised in Mexico City, and currently living in Houston. Although I felt like an outsider during my first few Texan years, I realized that sharing my love of food drew me closer to people and defined who I am, where I came from, and where I’m going.
My close-knit family taught me to be proud of my roots and come back at them whenever I feel lost to remind me of who I am. Mexico is my first love but I’m extremely proud of being raised in a Lebanese family, where my love of food was born.
After starting culinary school to get my Bachelor of Culinary Arts at Culinary Institute LeNôtre, I realized how much I wanted to share my roots and love of cooking the way my grandparents did.
The next few months were filled with research and courage to orchestrate the list you now see on Kuri Market. This menu is full of items I love and often eat at home! The majority of my ingredients are sourced from Mexican and Lebanese immigrants from farmer’s markets and specialty stores. Each recipe is crafted with thoughtful attention and your health in mind.
The list will shift and expand, but my commitment to cooking quality ready-to-use items and delicious flavors will always remain the same.
