April 2014, I started the local food blog Taste of Jordan to create worldwide awareness about the hidden culinary jewels of The Hashemite kingdom of Jordan. Being the founder and creative writer, I realized the potential in the promising culinary market as unique ventures were emerging to the surface utilizing locally sourced ingredients and talents. The ventures I come across and the talented individuals I meet whether as professional chefs, graphic designers, lawyers, senior managers or passionate amateurs walk the extra mile to turn their dreams into reality. A memorable experience is a promise of what those individuals take on themselves with the hard work and devotion they place in designing and delivering their products and services. A true celebration of senses and flavors!
Serving as an inflight chef for First Class guests at the aviation giant Etihad Airways, I am keeping up with my mission by remotely supporting the local community 2,000Km away from home. The Culinary Arts Diploma I was granted from The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts along with the exposure that my job offers strengthened my culinary experience and allowed me to develop a distinctive culinary taste while the background of Biomedical Engineering and my vast experience of 6 years combined in sales, culinary and hospitality adds a unique dimension to the contents’ spirit. Etihad’s international complexity is a learning environment where I seek every opportunity for development and growth. The connection with different cultures, personalities and professional backgrounds are a vital aspect that influence my social and communication skills and allow for continuous coaching and guidance that I strive for.
Prepare your coffee, hot cup of tea or your favorite beverage and enjoy browsing Taste of Jordan for what my beloved country has to offer!
