Meet Chef Wessen

Meet Chef Wessen

I was born in 1975 with passion for food. Ever since I could remember, I shadowed my Grandmother in the kitchen and by the age of five I made my first meal! Scrambled eggs breakfast for my mother on her birthday.

I scribbled and saved every recipe my Grandma prepared and learned her secrets to mixing spices. I admit I am an old school when it comes to cooking; never cut corners and always patient.

Soon after I immigrated to America in 1994, I realized that I have every opportunity to make my dream of becoming a caterer come true and sure enough, thanks to my family and friends who supported me with my big dreams.

My unique background led to a distinctive skill in using herbs and spices that makes my cuisine a true one of a kind. I personally hand pick my ingredients and only use top quality meats and the freshest vegetables and fruits.

My customers are my inspiration; I go out of my way to please them and make their special occasions an unforgettable experience. I am certain that when you try any of my dishes, you will become a repeat customer, I guarantee you that.

Testimonials

What our customers are saying!

The food is DELICIOUS and the portions are very generous! We got one of the family platters and have enough for at least 2 meals for 2 adults and 1 child. My son got the bechamel pasta and when he tasted it his eyes got all big and almost ran away with the whole box of food because he didn't want to share. We will be back!

Krista McKinney

Amazing food, perfectly seasoned, so authentic. We drove 45 min to get here, and it was well worth it. We will definitely be back . This is by far the best middle eastern cuisine we’ve tried in the US.

Mohammed Alfatlawi
