Cooking Up Arabic

Omar hails from Egypt, but identifies as a global citizen. He is a graduate of University of Texas and has lived and traveled extensively abroad. He is a petroleum engineer and true polyglot, speaking four languages: Arabic, English, Spanish, Portuguese, and a little French. Omar has many memories of learning to cook traditional Egyptian cuisine from his mom and found himself reconnecting with those memories as an adult when he started preparing dinner for himself and friends out in the oilfields of Texas. Omar likes to share his chemical knowledge of cooking with his students and friends. Favorite cooking time saver: adding a pinch of salt to water reduces the boiling point making water boil faster! Yessss.
