Mariam was born and raised in Sierra Leone, West Africa, but her parents are original from Lebanon.
She has always been passionate about food. After getting married, Mariam moved far away from my family, and didn’t know the first thing about cooking. She taught herself to cook out of motivation to experience the same flavors she experienced growing up in the kitchens of my mother, aunt and grandmother.
Right after she got pregnant with my first baby, I experienced crazy cravings which varied from one day to the next. As a result, she started teaching myself how to cook. She applied her cooking skills to specialty foods and sweet treats, which she craved, and this started daily cooking creations! With each dish or dessert, she came up with a new idea or concept, and my passion grew.
Thus, Cookin' with Mima was born!
