Join us for a night of themed food and entertainment at our Chefs at Sea series aboard the Beauport Cruiselines! Enjoy a unique evening of festive music, a belly dancing show, and fresh tastes of Mediterranean street food prepared by featured Chef Rory Lee of Moona
About the Chef:
Rory Lee was infatuated with cooking from his early days in South Boston (born and raised), where he grew up watching his mother and grandmother prepare meals for his big family. Lee began his culinary journey at the beloved Sullivan’s at Castle Island but it wasn’t until he took his first job at KO Pies in South Boston that he really fell in love with all things cooking and, especially, making dough. After three years at KO Pies, he moved on to manage Stone and Skillet English Muffin Company where he honed his skills as a bread maker. In 2016, he joined the team at Moona as a line cook and has since worked his way up. Now as Chef de Cuisine he draws on the authentic influences of Turkey, Morocco, Greece, and more, reinterpreting traditional cuisines to appeal to today’s modern New England palate.
The Restaurant: Moona
Moona cherishes the culinary tradition of nourishment, sustenance and purity in the Arabic and Eastern Mediterranean tradition. Dishes are served in a sharable format. The word “moona” or “mouneh” in slang comes from the Arabic word mana or ma’oona, meaning “storing.” In other words, it’s the English equivalent of the “pantry.” In the past, especially in remote villages in the Arab World, the moona was prepared during the bountiful harvest for consumption during winter’s harsh days, providing fundamental nourishment for the daily meal, having transformed perishable produce into food with a long shelf life. Things such as olives, pickles, preserved lemons, cheese, spices, herbs, jams, etc.
