It is with great sadness that i write this obitionary of my close friend & little brother Karim Chhibbane also known to many of you as “chef karim.” I first met him at a party at the American school in Marrakech, Morocco in 1980. We became friends immediately. He had the finest carpets in the souk. I bough so many of his special pieces & still treasure them. So, at first i brought him to the island of ibiza where i was living where he cooked his amazing cous cous. Then we drove from barcelona to amsterdam where he walked everyday just meeting & talking to people. Then to california & finally santa barbara & “chef karims.” He was a amazing chef. Unfortunately he passed away at 64 years of age. He was a very special person & we will miss him greatly. We send him our love. Michael Shapiro
