And here is the story:

Blessed by life, beauty, aromas and tastes of the kitchen, we come together to celebrate the infinite power of motherhood. 

Inspired by renowned jazz singer Emilia Martensson‘s new album to be released next year (you’ll get a first glimpse!!!!), we cross worlds and connect the motherly ties from four different heritages for the next edition of the Mixed Sessions.

Emilia comes with her Swedish heritage and chef Mostafa Hussien expresses the Egyptian traditions learned with his mother, all in conversation with Cooknst Brazilian roots and a taste of Italian on the wine pairing.
