Although born in England and raised on the US-Mexican border, Lena’s roots and heritage hail from the Middle East as she is a “tabbouleh” mix of Jordan and Iran, among other countries. Lena recently started to document more closely the culinary traditions from her family background that goes back many generations. As well as recording her gastronomic journeys, she is taking a variety of courses at some of Vancouver’s culinary establishments. She loves “Arab-izing” Western dishes.
Be warned, chocolate is her drug of choice!
