Nargisse Benkabbou was raised in Brussels, where she grew up in a strongly food oriented family that continually nurtured her connection with her roots and country of origin, Morocco.
After living in Brussels and Paris, Nargisse moved to London a few years ago to pursue her education in Politics only to realise that her love for cooking and food was a real passion. After training at Leiths School of Food and Wine, she started blogging and sharing her Moroccan recipes “with a twist”. In addition to recipes that run the gamut from starters to desserts, Nargisse also shares her own “food for thought”, a personal commentary section of her site dedicated to exploring Moroccan ingredients and experimenting with new cooking techniques.
Her work currently involves recipe development, food photography, cooking classes and working as a guest chef. Nargisse has recently been named as an Observer Rising Star in Food 2018 and declared as one of the hottest talents for the year ahead.
Nargisse is the founder of www.MyMoroccanFood.com
