Shaheed, our Manager
Our manager - but also: photographer, event manager, accountant, driver, and Manou’s psychological support system...
In other words, without him, we aren’t really sure LCDM would have made it to its 6th anniversary at all. We are incredibly grateful to have him in our team, for his ability to stay calm and positive even in stressful times, and for everything Shaheed has done for the company in the past six years.
Jho, our Head Chef
With us since August 2015, Jhonathan was one of the first members of our team! Since the very beginning of his time at LCDM, Jho has brought a contagiously positive energy to the kitchen each and every day, and finds humour in every situation. Jhonathan is always happy to try new recipes - from traditional cuisines to vegan dishes for Manou’s daughter, he really does it all.
Basheer, our Chef
Our chef working alongside Jho, Basheer brings absolute kindness, positivity, and hard work to every single thing he does. Besides being an amazing cook - specializing in traditional cuisines, but capable of making anything he puts his mind to, Basheer has consistently been a calming and warm presence in our team since arriving in September 2017.
Kalum, our Pastry Chef
The newest member of our team, Kalum has been a part of our LCDM family since July 2018. In charge of all orders made to our pastry section, Kalum can do it all - from our afternoon tea snacks, dessert platters, or traditional French pastries and tarts. Thank you for everything you do Kalum!
Noushad, our Driver
Our full time driver at LCDM, Noushad (aka Noushu😁) has been an invaluable member of our team since September of 2017. Probably one of our best known employees to our clients, Noushad is the one that gets all your orders delivered to you - and almost always on time😅!
