Shawarma is a dish in Middle Eastern cuisine that our Western audience is sure to recognise! Originally made out of lamb or mutton, today's shawarma may also be chicken, turkey, beef, or veal. About Chef Sandra Makary: As the Egyptians say, ‘The baking smell in the house brings all the blessings along.’ Sandra Makary studied Pharmacy and then Nutrition, but found the most happiness and passion in the kitchen. Using her medical background along with the cooking techniques she studied at different culinary schools around the world (mainly le Cordon Blue and Monappetit Academy in Egypt) she began to develop healthy recipes, which one can happily enjoy without gaining the extra pounds. Makary conducts cooking workshops at different Culinary Schools in Egypt and loves to share her recipes- in her Masterclass, that’s exactly what she’ll be doing!
