Andrew Al-Khouri is a tax officer from Cape Breton, N.S., currently residing in Halifax. He originally learned to cook from his mom, and he says she continues to inspire his dishes, which have become an outlet for his creativity. Chicken shawarma, lamb, donair, and gnocchi are only a few of his favourite dishes to make for family and friends. You can find Andrew in the kitchen, cooking away to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” with his favourite cooking tool – an offset spatula.
Andrew’s food dream is to open a burger joint in downtown Halifax.
