About me

Growing up in my grandmothers house, I remember watching her hands gently folding butter into freckled pastry dough then waiting anxiously until the smell of cooked knafeh emerges from the oven like fresh hot bread. I never thought I would ever need to learn or make these dishes until I moved to California, 10 years ago. I didn't realize how much I missed the flavors of those desserts. And the challenge was remembering and perfectly implementing her techniques.

Soon after, I served my first creations to friends at dinner parties, the flavors and the aroma of orange blossom water seemed to delight them and I started getting compliments and encouragement to venture out and share what i had rediscovered.

I would like to dedicate this journey to my family and my friends and thank them for their support encouragement and their belief in my talent.

Welcome to a new fresh and exciting culinary dessert experience @ LeVant
