Meet the Chefs! Hisham Diab, Fadwa Aoude and Khalil Bazzi

Chef Hisham Diab

Chef Diab first started working in a restaurant when he was 16 as a bus boy.  The owner would sleep in his office and tell Diab to wake him when guests came in. Eventually Diab got sick of waking him, so he started cooking the food himself. He later completed one year at Oakland Community College Culinary School and then transferred to the Culinary Institute of America in New York. After years of traveling and working in New York, he is back in the Detroit area exploring and influencing the food scene.
