About

About Zeina  

I’ve been married for over 26 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.
