I’ve been married for over 28 years & I am a mother of 3 amazing boys. I’ve been in the hairdressing industry for over 30 years as a Stylist and Master Colorist and I love it! Having a career in cooking and television was always a dream for me. I had a catering company for a few years and now I am proud to say that I am ready to share my knowledge and passion for food. This passion has followed me from a very young age. Now in my forties, I have become more involved in health and wellness and I understand the importance of good nutrition. I look forward to the opportunity to share great cooking tips in a fun, friendly and intimate setting that will help you achieve your culinary goals.

About Robert

My wine journey began when a group of colleagues from work and I decided to organize wine tastings in each other’s kitchens and dining rooms. The allure of the vast wine landscape quickly took hold of my natural curiosity and fueled my desire to understand the reasons why each wine tastes like it does.

This led to me to seeking out the renowned Wine and Spirit Education Trust program. I was awarded a Pass with Distinction for the level 3 Advanced Certificate from the WSET in 2007. I am proud to be recognized by the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.

The world of wine is growing, and quality wines are produced in more regions than ever before.

I invite you to join me as I share my knowledge to expand your world of wine, as we explore the different wine producing regions, grape varietals, and learn various tasting techniques.

Zeina’s Cooking Tips!

Here is how to Simplify meal time.

When your pantry is organized you will benefit from the stress relief it brings, every time you are planning a meal.

You will thank me later 😉

Easier said than done? Not this time!

Let me share with you the secret of my success in creating delicious stress-free last-minute meals. The steps are simple and well worth the effort and time you will invest setting it up.

Here are the 5 steps you need to master

  1. The First List of What you love to eat: On a sheet of paper, write down 6 to 8 of your go to dishes including side dishes. The ones you can put together in little or no time and that they are a favourite in your kitchen.
  2. The Second List: On a new sheet of paper, draw a line vertically in the middle, from top to bottom. Title the left side “A-perishable” the other “B non-perishable” ingredients.
  3. Write the ingredients down: One by one, list the names of each dish and write next to each one all the ingredients you need to make them. Separate them by category A or B
  4. Seasoning and Marinating: All your best oils, vinegars, sauces, spices must be included on your list.
  5. Regular inventory check: When all your go to ingredients are in stock in your pantry, you will be able to create all your favourite dishes. All you need to purchase are your fruits, vegetables and meats.

Here are some examples of my favourite pantry items:

Italian:
Tomato sauce, olive oil, basil leaves, pepper, salt, pasta, tomato paste, garlic, onion…
Asian:
Oyster sauce, soya sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic…
Mexican:
Salsa, taco spice, red pepper flakes, rice, black beans…
Mediterranean:
Chicken broth, black eyed beans, Hummus, Quinoa…
