Join us for the last in the Chef Creations series.. An evening with Zeina’s Kitchen, a Mediterranean Feast..
A bit about Zeina
Preparing healthy, delicious food is my passion!
I always say, “Where there’s food, there’s love!” and that’s exactly how I feel whenever I cook meals or special treats for my husband Robert, and our three now grown sons. I also love to welcome the rest of my family and friends – including the new ones I make through my cooking classes with nutritious colourful food.
Growing up I was pretty much raised in the kitchen where my parents were always preparing wonderful Mediterranean food for our household. They started to teach me their kitchen skills when I was eight years old.
In my early 40s I actually ran a catering business for about five years, making fresh homestyle meals for busy families.
Eight years ago, I started Zeina’s Kitchen to offer cooking classes. In my kitchen. I shared my techniques and quick ways for making delicious, healthy food in almost no time with others. I also invited my husband, Robert, to share his extensive knowledge and passion for wine in tasting sessions.
My Husband Robert loves to learn everything he can about the world’s different wine regions and what their terroir and traditions can produce. After successfully being awarded a Pass with Distinction for the Level 3 from the advanced certificate from the WSET in 2007, he is now a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.
Together we have been offering a range of cooking, wine-tasting served with tapas in person and online for the general public, private groups, as well as corporate events. We have met and connected with a lot of wonderful people in the process and continue to enjoy food preparation and wine discovery with a number of them on a regular basis.
