Faz’s Proud Culinary History:
Faz credits his success to his love of food and cooking acquired growing up in rural Iran. As a boy, Faz was called on by his family to pick the season produce from their farm, and help his Mother in the kitchen with recipes handed down through the generations. In winter, Faz hunted prized game birds for family meals.
As Faz describes; “It was a simple life full of beauty. My Father was a farmer who had plenty of land. We had sheep and goats by the thousands, kept up in the mountains. There was a beautiful garden in the middle of the house with sour cherries trees, apricot trees, white peach trees, walnut, quince and white mulberries. We grew grapes, almonds, pears, walnuts, in gardens that surrounded the house. We had tons of roses from which I would make rose water. We grew acres of wheat from which we made our own bread.”
It would be that love of nature, love of proud culinary heritage that stuck with Faz and inspired him to pursue culinary arts.
Faz Poursohi came to the United States in 1974 to attend University of Illinois to achieve his Engineering degree.
