JEDDAH: WWE stars Rhyno and Heath Slater participated in a steak-cooking session in Jeddah on Thursday under the supervision of “Social Kitchen” restaurant owner Basma El-Khereiji.
The guests were warmly welcomed by the chef.
“I started in marketing and advertising but I didn’t like it so then I decided to pursue food as my career because that is what makes me happy,” she told them.
Rhyno and Slater then grabbed their cooking gear and followed the chef’s instructions throughout the session.
The wrestlers were thrilled as they chatted and shared their food stories while they grilled their steaks.
“I will definitely make this for my family once I go back home,” Heath said.
When their steaks were done they made gnocchi pasta, made with potatoes. Rhino was thrilled as he is from an Italian background.
When they were finished cooking, the WWE stars presented their dishes to the chef for tasting and judging. She tried both dishes and decided it was a tie.
“I have learned so much today thanks to chef Basma,” Slater said.
“I can handle both of them pretty well I think; This proves size doesn’t matter,” El-Khereiji joked.
Slater was thrilled to be a part of the session and said that he was enjoying his trip to Jeddah. “The people have been great so far, they are very warm and welcoming,” he said.
Later, when the wrestlers were finished with their food, they chatted with the audience and took pictures with fans.
The restaurant is soon to open officially and the first guests could not have been more special for Basma.
“I had a great time with the wrestlers and hopefully you will come and have a great meal too,” she said in a message to the people of Jeddah.
