Bakhos Mjalleh


​Born in Lebanon and raised by tradition, Bakhos grew up inspired by his grandmother’s authentic cooking which led him to pursue culinary schooling. Bakhos graduated in Hotel Management and Culinary Arts in 1995 and followed his passion through Lebanon, Kuwait, Bahrain, South Korea and now in Canada. Although he has diverse experiences in Levantine and Mediterranean cuisine, his favourite remains Lebanese cooking (and eating). Bakhos excels in developing new menus while preserving the integrity of traditional recipes. His unique approach reached new heights while cooking for and serving kings, sultans and princes in Bahrain for the Gulf Council Committee meeting. He has also run royal wedding banquets and special events for thousands of guests which highlighted his love for large productions. Bakhos is involved with nutriFoodie’s custom program packages, alongside Cristel, in which he leads cooking demonstrations and classes for clients in the comfort of their home.
