The winning dish, which Atamna-Ismaeel named "Sultan's Spring," was made of stripped red mullet with almond cream and a fresh vegetable salad.

 

"It was one of the most exciting experiences of my life," she said after being declared the winner.

During the "Master Chef" season, Atamna-Ismaeel discussed her dream of opening open a Jewish-Arab cooking school which would attract students from all over the country, and she will now try to fulfill it.

 

In addition to her PhD in biological science, Atamna-Ismaeel has as many as four additional postdoctoral degrees. She has three children, a six-year-old boy and two-year-old twins, and as a child she studied in a Jewish school.

 

Her mother, a Hebrew teacher, gave her daughter the name Nof after watching a television series on Jordanian TV about a girl with that name, which is common among desert nomads and means the highest spot on the camel's hump.
