Liberian/Lebanese Pop-Up Dinner!
We are excited to host The Kitchen Ramarj’s first Pop-up Dinner at ZTC Culinary Studio featuring the ONE and Only:
Chef Ameneh Marhaba!
The Kitchen Ramarj pop-up is the brainchild of Ameneh Marhaba, a 22-year- old
with a colorful, international history. Her mother is Liberian and her father is
Lebanese. She lived in Lebanon as a child and then in Liberia until she was a
teenager, which instilled in her a family knowledge of two very different cuisines.
“I had the opportunity to see how Lebanese food is made, because my mom used to
make it all the time and we loved it ” Marhaba says. “The food is amazing. Then you
go to Liberia and it’s like, Whoa! The flavors are awesome!”
Of course, the two cuisines couldn’t be more different. Lebanese chefs can be spice-
averse, at least if they feel it disguises a lack of freshness. And Liberian food can
heap on the habaneros.
But Marhaba says it’s possible to fuse the best of both
worlds… Join us and let’s experience the burst in flavors!
