About this Event

Introducing Zack!

I was born and raised in Morocco where my cooking inspiration stems from. Morocco is famous for its fresh markets with fresh produce, towering piles of spices and its fresh halal butchers. At an early age I fell in love with helping my aunts and grandmother cook in the kitchen They would bake fresh bread every morning and cook meals from scratch all day. The smell of all the ingredients harmonizing with spices together still brings me back to those Sunday afternoons kneading bread and steaming couscous over the stove for Friday meal ritual. I have had a passion for cooking ever since those early days in the kitchen with my family. I moved to America ten years ago and have since worked in a range of different restaurants from Italian, Mediterranean, to vegetarian cuisine, having worked many different positions in the industry from line cook to district manager. Nothing excited me more than to cook Moroccan cuisine and continue to share my love of farm-to-table Moroccan cooking the same way my grandmother and aunts shared it with me.
