The staff at Mediterranean Day Spa knows that true beauty comes from this inside, a notion they honor by providing therapeutic services to local military veterans and their families via Operation Oasis. Within the spa?s luxurious confines, both service members and civilians let their eyes drink in the soothing sights of nature-inspired artwork on natural walls before selecting from the spa?s eclectic service menu. Plush, leather pedicure chairs foster an array of invigorating foot treatments while private treatment rooms host massages, wraps, waxing, and body scrubs that reflect the tradition of Turkish hammams.
Michelle and Mouhssine, the chefs behind Sweet Thyme : A Personal Chef Service, both picked up culinary skills at a young age. Michelle remembers making butter cream with her father at the age of 4, and later worked as a sous chef for her mother’s pastry business. Mouhssine counts pulling carrots from the family garden and helping his grandfather to butcher lambs among his childhood chores in Tiflet, Morocco. Both eventually came to San Antonio to hone their skills at the Culinary Institute of America.
The two chefs distill their long immersion in the culinary arts into cooking sessions when they travel to clients’ homes. There, they fashion locally acquired ingredients into menus tailored to preferences and needs. They can prepare American dishes such as short ribs braised in Brooklyn brown ale and served with root vegetables, or craft international dishes such as Moroccan-style tagine lamb shanks with black-currant couscous. Meat-free entrees such as pumpkin enchiladas in mole sauce offer vegetarians an alternative to plastic fruit. Mouhssine is also a wine steward, and shares his knowledge through wine classes and presentations.
