Loving Lebanon; its cuisine & culture rising through heartbreak, with food entrepreneur Mona Usher
Sep 09, 2020 Season 2 Episode 21
Lou Hamilton

This week's guest is Mona Usher, founder of Samara Cuisine; a Lebanese wedding catering business. She brings the cooking and culture from her homeland, where she grew up in war-torn Beirut. Mona shares her love for Lebanon which has been so battered over the years; not least most recently with the devastating impact of the harbour explosion.

Brave New You TRIBE podcast Host, artist & illustrator, Lou Hamilton chats with Mona, as they discuss the 15 years of war that Mona grew up in, often trapped in her flat for fear of bombardment or snipers, but using her time to learn to cook. Mona has since built her life here in the UK, but her heart is still with Lebanon, and so when she watched the recent horrifying explosion destroy her city once more, her heart broke again for her people and her country. This Woman of Courage brings us her Story from the Edge.
