Chef Joe Barza is a bit of a character. Impressive in stature and culinary skills, he has dazzled the enitre Middle East, raising the bar for gourmet Lebanese and Arabic food from the region. He a a well travelled chef, whose presence has been felt throughout the Middle East, Europe, Africa and North America. He is known for taking traditionally homely Arabic cuisine and transforming it into modern menus and gourmet presentations.
I was recently commissioned by Waldorf Astoria, Ras Al Khaimah for a photo shoot with the consultant chef for their Marjan (Arablic) Restaurant and I wanted to share a few of the photos and also how he has used them.
The restaurant recently launched a new menu under the leadership of Chef Joe and Chef Mounir Al Khatib at the Waldorf Astoria. The official photos were selected from amongst this set. But here I am giving you a little extra behind the scenes…
HOW THE PHOTOS HAVE BEEN USED:
The photo were used by the Waldorf Astoria on their social media platforms as we well as for other public relations activities. One was also published in popular magagine, Edgar as part of a feature on Chef Joe. The Gulf News published a photo along with a recipe for the cover of their Life & Style | Food section. The chef has also used them on his own Facebook page as profile pictures and part of his portfolio.
