Mayssam would go to the ends of the earth (and has) to quench a culinary craving! Definitely not a food snob, you will find her in any type of eating establishment from the smallest hole-in-the-wall to the most acclaimed restos. Known also for her familiarity (i.e. obsession) with Michelin-starred chefs, Mayssam has posed with la crème de la crème for many a snapshot. Her collection of cookbooks would put any self-proclaimed foodie to shame.
