Founder, Modern Persian Kitchen
Tehran-born Shary has over 30 years of experience in award-winning and established restaurants across the world.
Thanks to his Maman, who often hosted huge parties and celebrations at their family home, he discovered a love for cooking from a young age.
Gaining experience with renowned chefs including Raymond Blanc, Antonio Mancini, and Steven Nash, Shary went on to lead various five-star restaurants in the Middle East. He later worked at Le Manoir, before joining the leadership team at Le Petit Blanc Brasserie.
It’s Shary’s extensive experience that prompted a life-changing move — to set up his own venture inspired by the food from his heritage.
In 2018, Shary, along with his wife, Debbie, and daughter, Natalie, launched Modern Persian Kitchen, a nationwide Persian food delivery service, that continues to go from strength to strength.
The family trio also run monthly supper clubs, celebrating Persian cuisine through a surprising and modern menu. They hope to pass on their food love story by making Persian food easily accessible all over the UK.
