Heirloom Meals Radio:
Marilyn and Nabih Nejaime

I was lucky enough to sit down with Marilyn and Nabih Nejaime one sunny afternoon. They shared their amazing story of how their Lebanese heritage served as the basis of their booming business! As good stories often are, the story of how the Nejaimes began their lavash company happen almost as accident. A customer at their grocery store in Stockbridge requested the Lebanese flatbread, but Nabih refused to serve the low quality of manufactured lavash. Instead he made his own for the customer, and served the leftovers as samples to the shoppers. The next day, people returned requesting "that bread stuff." Although they didn't share the lavash recipe with me, I did manage to get their delicious humous recipe and fattoush salad. Listen to the rest of their amazing story on Heirloom Meals Radio!
