Léa and Nur first met when Lea was running an art gallery in Beirut called The Running Horse, she is one of those people who is so passionate about what they do, that you can’t help but fall under the same spell. Her gallery was sexy, in the middle of the industrial area in Karantina. When visiting you really felt that you were part of something new and exciting. The Léa Effect. Nothing however, was as exciting as when Léa would invite you home for dinner. When that happened you canceled all plans because you knew that something special was going to happen to all of your senses. The woman can cook. Luckily she has taken the leap of culinary faith and has opened her Chew Choose Kitchen, unlucky for us it is based out of London, but today she shares a glimpse of it with us.
