    Posted on 04th February 2021.

Chef Abdulilah Shadoud’s career spans more than a decade, including a spot on Abu Dhabi TV’s Matloob Chef, and today he heads the kitchen at Kuzbara, the international restaurant at the Marriott Hotel Downtown, Abu Dhabi.

The Syrian-born chef says he loves Abu Dhabi because the city embodies a vibrant cultural smorgasbord, and at Kuzbara he combines his special brand of creativity, passion for cuisine and traditional cooking sensibilities to serve up authentic Middle Eastern fare in a contemporary setting.

Marriott Bonvoy Traveler sat down with Shadoud to chat about his vision for the restaurant, culinary influences and whether cooking on television is more difficult than in a restaurant.
