A passionate cook, TV presenter, teacher and cookery book author, this busy mum-of-three knows a thing or two about local food. “I adore Arabic cuisine and believe that food brings people together. There’s always joy in the kitchen,” says Suzanne, who was first discovered when a TV producer witnessed her giving one of her classes and offered her the opportunity to film her own cooking show. “I taped 30 episodes and then branched out into publishing my own recipe book. But one of my favourite things is performing cooking demonstrations around the world.”

Suzanne’s demonstrations have taken her throughout the Middle East, as well as Europe, and during her travels she aims to ignite long-term friendships. “The breaking of bread is an honorable experience, and sharing a meal promotes peace and understanding of one another.”
