About this pro

I am Judith, a tri-continental Hybrid, born in East Africa, raised in Europe, and now a DC transplant. Cooking and everything revolving around food is my true passion. Marrying the richness of Mediterranean cuisine and the American simplicity makes a perfect match of good and tasty food without spending hours and hours in the kitchen and/or breaking the bank.

You name it, I can cook it, no matter whether it is breakfast lunch or dinner. Using herbs and spices, fresh produce and simplicity is my key ingredient to having fun in the kitchen.

Having fun is mandatory when in the kitchen. Otherwise you aren't able to be creative and master the magic of cooking. 

The excitement about not exactly knowing what I am going to cook, opening my panty and about 20-30 minutes later being able to feed my family and friends who are not skimpy when it comes to complimenting me on "the Magic!".

    I had a wonderful experience with Ambesa Foods International. The food was delicious and you could tell it was made with love. Looking forward to Ambesa experience in the future.

    There is a unique quality and flavor to all of Ambesa Foods dishes: always a familiar taste combined with an international or intriguing twist. From salads to pastries to tender meats, all her foods are elevated and leave you wanting more.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

A telephonic or in person meeting. Getting to know each other over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine will break the ice. It is important to ensure that I understand the client's needs and level of comfort in the kitchen.

A) Does the client truly want to learn to cook because he/she loves to cook


B) Is is the mere need to know the basics for the sake of not having to eat out every day?

That's the first step and we will go from there...
