Hello! My name is Alia. I'm a mother of two and a personal chef living in Montreal, Quebec. Up until 18 months ago, I had a great paying job at a financial institution. I decided to leave it all behind to follow my heart and my passion!! COOKING!!! I'm thrilled with the choice I made! Everytime I prepare delicious foods for my clients and see how I'm contributing to their quality of life, I know that I'm following my true calling.
My favorite things to cook
I love preparing elaborate gourmet meals! I enjoy the challenge. But really, what I love the most, is preparng comfort foods: hearty soups and stews, savoury casseroles, pasta dishes.
I love trying new things and adding a twist to the most basic recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess I wuld have to say Christams dinner. It's what I would call our sacred dinner of th year.. Can't change the menu or the recipes.. EVER!!
My cooking triumphs
Everytime I cook for a client and see how happy it makes them, it's a victory for me and my heart is filled.
My cooking tragedies
Desserts.. Forget it..I've tried.. Really.. I have.
