A banker by profession and an explorer by passion, Maha Aldossari quit her job and found her calling in the food world. She traveled to London in 2014 and studied at Le Cordon Bleu for three years, and in 2017, she returned to Saudi with a masters in Tourism and Hospitality. During this time, she had already transitioned into a vegan lifestyle and this became her ultimate changing point. Unable to find a vegan restaurant for work experience, she accepted the job of a junior sous chef at Ritz Carlton Riyadh and worked there for one and a half years.
A proponent of veganism, she has also developed the vegan menu of a popular upscale burger joint in Riyadh. She continues to explore and is on a mission to spread awareness about ethical veganism and transforming the plant-based scene in Saudi.
