Mohannad AlShemali

Qbara’s Head Chef

NEW-CHEF-BIG

Mohannad always knew he wanted to become a chef. Growing up, watching his mother cook, the smells and flavours of the different dishes and the endless possibilities to create something new always intrigued him.

He started his career in 2000 at 5 star properties in Syria and moved to Dubai to join Fairmont Hotel as Chef de Cuisine. After 3 years, Mohannad was given the opportunity to work for Emaar in some of their fine dining properties such as Ember Grill and At.mosphere at Burj Khalifa. Mohannad join Qbara as part of the pre-opening team as Senior Sous Chef, before being promoted to Head Chef in 2015.

Mohannad credits the fundamentals of his culinary skills to his mother but he also had two mentors in his 15-year career. These mentors helped to refine and hone his abilities and taught him skills that he still uses to this day.
