Chef Badr Fayez

NEW ORLEANS – The Southern Food and Beverage Museum (SoFAB) announced that Chef Badr Fayez, a member of a new generation of chefs working in the Middle East, will host a cooking demonstration on Saturday, April 29, at SoFAB’s Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air, 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

         Admission to the museum and culinary demonstration is free and open-to-the-public with the support of Washington, D.C. based Middle East Institute. 

         Offered in the state-of-the-art Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air, Chef Fayez will lead a demonstration and tasting while discussing his mission of elevating Saudi Arabian cuisine. Guests can enjoy close-up action while the talented Chef demonstrates how to prepare authentic dishes from his native country.

         Fayez has opened two restaurants and a bakery in Jeddah.
