Sameh Wadi is a renowned chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and spice connoisseur.


After opening Saffron--a fine dining Middle Eastern restaurant--in 2007, Sameh quickly became known throughout the Twin Cities and beyond for his playful and delicious take on global flavors, heavily influenced by his Palestinian roots.


Sameh is now Chef/Owner of Twin Cities mainstays World Street Kitchen (globally influenced street food), Milkjam Creamery (chef-driven ice cream), and Grand Catch (viet-cajun seafood boils). He feels strongly that if something doesn’t bring you happiness, it isn’t worth your time—which is why he spends many hours per week looking at dog videos on Instagram.
