The Lebanese culture is mostly famous for its delicious cuisine. Through a large Diaspora, Lebanese food and restaurants started to take over the world of foodies. Recently, a renowned café in Kansas City, Missouri hired a new head chef with a Lebanese heritage named Remy Ayesh. In fact, Café Sebastienne is a well-known café which is located in the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. The latter is a state-of-the art modern museum in Missouri that houses unique artworks which belong to a permanent collection. This world-class café offers dishes that reflect the contemporary nature of the museum. Recently, the café has been looking for a new head chef. After organizing a national search and conducting a selection process with culinary experts, the Board of Trustees and the Museum leadership selected Remy Ayesh as the new head chef. In fact, her unique taste and her numerous experiences in this field are two major things that impressed the jury. Born in Kansas to a Lebanese family, the Lebanese chef Remy Ayesh is a mix of two different cultures. By spending time with her grandparents who taught her gardening and cooking, this Lebanese chef has been exposed to the Lebanese culture as if she was living in Lebanon. Her passion for food has contributed to her success in her field. Before joining Café Sebastienne, Ayesh worked as a sous-chef in top-tier restaurants in New York City and around the world. Also, the famous chef Rick Bayless included Ayesh in the Top 12 Tastemakers in Chicago list. In fact, Tony Glamcevski, the Director of Food & Beverage, and Special Events of the museum is sure that Remy Ayesh will add excellence to the café in a fresh and contemporary way.
