The majlis is a place of gathering and comfort. It literally means seat but moreover the notion of meeting. The majlis are irrevocably connected with the concept of Qatari hospitality, offering travellers a seat among your peers, as well as sustenance for the body, and the mind - poetry and stories.
Hi, I’m Leonard Armin Jimenez from The Phillippines.
After a decade working in various Hotel and Restaurant kitchens in The Phillippines where I gained a solid culinary foundation, I moved to Dubai. I spent 4 years at one the 5 Start Hotels crafting my fine dining skills for VIP events, all under the guidance of 3 Michelin Star chef Yannick Alleno.
More recently I have become the Head Chef of Al Wahaj located at the Galleries Lafayette in Doha.
My passion for cooking and the knowledge I have gained over the years has brought me to the most important sporting event of the year, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.
I’m proud to be presenting an iconic Middle Eastern Salad, the famous Fattoush Salad and look forward to serving so many excited football fans over the tournament.
