Aziza is a chef with a passion for transforming traditional recipes into extraordinary meals. At the age of 9, her father started teaching her how to cook, and by age 12 she was working for her Pop-pop’s catering company. Her only professional training happened in her junior year of high school, when she went to Montgomery County Technical School for Culinary Arts. In 2014, a year after opening her own catering business, Aziza was cast on Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen and worked with Chef Gordon Ramsay.
Aziza currently lives in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania with her husband and four children. Her long term goal is to open her own restaurant "serving whatever food my soul wants to make that day."
"My goal going in was for exposure — not exposure just of me but exposing myself to new ideas, new skills, and new people. I did that but also learned so much from my teammates and Chef Ramsey."
