Born in Lebanon, Edouard Massih is a Brooklyn-based private chef and caterer inspired by the flavors and colors of the Middle East. Chef Edouard’s unique take on Mediterranean cuisine stems from the recipes he grew up perfecting in his grandmother’s kitchen.
After his family immigrated to the U.S., Chef tirelessly researched to find the right ingredients that were not easily accessible stateside. He began experimenting with techniques and substituted elements in order to recreate the distinct essence of Lebanese and Greek food with a modern twist. Because cooking for others is not only a customized service but also a deeply personal experience, every dish has a dash of his grandfather’s olive oil from Lebanon that lends itself to a taste and love truly unmatched.
Chef believes that good, thoughtful food creates community. He believes that food is a universal language that brings people together, creating common ground.

I just used Edouard and his team for my Brooklyn wedding and could not be happier with the results. Throughout the entire process, he was super responsive, responsible and accommodating.
The guests kept complimenting us on the food and how everything had come together - so I would highly recommend Eduoard for any event!
Edouard was able to work within our budget and provide all we needed. He was super easy to work with to create a menu to fit all the dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten free and nut allergies).
I would recommend him 100%. He is very personable and he makes you feel like his only client!
So usually I go out and make a huge deal of my birthday since of course it's the best day of the year! A friend recommended Chef Edy, and I have to say this birthday beat any other birthdays I've had! I had very specific requests for my menu and none of them fell short!
Thank you Edy for making my birthday a night to remember!
