Joe Barza

Position: Chef - Lebanon
: Mozata

“As it is common that being a public figure requires perseverance, hard work, and creativity so that one always stays up to date and works on improving himself to the best version. As for me, chef Joe Barza, since the year 2000 I put my ego aside and focused on how to create a unique line in my cuisine which favoured organic fresh products and motivated with that choice my homeland agriculture and local products. This choice created a special identity for Joe Barza in the Lebanese and international cuisine and many other chefs took this line as an example to follow. Every day I feel proud of my choice more than ever because I was able to translate my love and attachment to my country in my cuisine and that I could inspire many young chefs to do the same.”
