Her love for cooking started when she was five and her baba would take her to make pizza dough in their shop before taking her to school.
She, therefore, spent years in the family-owned cafe in Worcester, MA, closely following her mother’s techniques. Seta’s parents didn’t know anything but cooking with what’s in season, cooking with little waste and most importantly, understanding where the food came from and treating it with respect. Seta went on to attend Johnson & Wales in Rhode Island for culinary arts and started a professional career with Jody Adams at the former Rialto restaurant. For the six years, she was the beloved owner of Seta’s Cafe in Belmont, MA preparing food with locally sourced ingredients from Greater Boston farmers markets. Seta’s belief is that good food is simple food, prepared with fresh, healthy, nutrient-dense ingredients that make you feel good and are simple to prepare. Inspired by traditions, Seta blends together the old and the modern, adding a bit of Mediterranean flare and serving a simple, good, home-cooked styled meal.
