Umber Ahmad Creator And Head Chef Of Mah Ze Dahr
Umber Ahmad is the founder and head chef at Mah Ze Dahr bakery, the first brand under the Colicchio Discovery Platform. Umber grew up being fascinated by how things worked - this led her to study Genetics at MIT, get her Masters in International Health Policy at University of Michigan and an MBA in Business and Finance at Wharton. She has worked at Goldman Sachs & at Morgan Stanley, has worked in the restructuring of hospitals and health systems in the US and Canada, helped brands expand their footprint throughout the world. This has given her quite the toolbox of skills. All the while, cooking has been a constant joy in her life, and it was not until she received a query that made her do a double-take, that she decided to jump fully into baking. In this episode, we talk about how she filled up her toolbox that prepared her to start Mah Ze Dahr, how studying genetics contributed to creating a bakery, how Mah Ze Dahr is best experienced, the concept of mise-en-place in helping a chef focus, and how the trees in a snowy Michigan winter are similar to being an entrepreneur.
