George Farah Founder of Snake Charmer Choppers.
I was born in 1969 I grew up in a small country town called Bathurst N.S.W Australia with a population of 39,000 where children of European decent were not liked. It made my growing years in and out of school a tough and extremely violent experience. Trying to survive as a one man race, caused me to get expelled from every school I attended. My parents tried their best to keep me occupied and out of trouble. I took a turn and I spent some time away from society for around 4 years and the only way to survive was to have a dream. Imagining up bikes and sketching them to paper seemed to make the time pass quicker. When I was released into society again there was nothing waiting for me but job rejections and closed doors, as nobody would give an ex-criminal a chance. This pushed me to be successful and to beat the system by never returning to prison, and showing the world I could make it.

Anthony travel’s across Lebanon and across the world not only indulging in food but also showing the city and it’s people’s stories. When I want to take a trip back to Lebanon I go to my room and binge watch Anthony’s food vlog.
“Every time I think I have relished all the wondrous flavour’s of the world. I stand to be corrected… With every image I hope to get a step closer to unfolding the secrets of the endless ingredients out there. NGNO presents trustworthy reviews of food, hotel stays and service, and my photographs are intended to help you enjoy my gastronomic explorations and tasteful meals prepared by masterful chefs as well as get the chance to travel with me around the world. Since I am Lebanese and after my extensive travels around the world, I can confidently say that Lebanon has truly mastered the art of diverse cuisine and there’s always a new place popping up that deserves recognition and exposure (be it bad or good).
But it’s not just about local restaurants, I also put the spotlight on many restaurants and hotels in major cities around the world. The main focus is of course food. Each meal is a culinary journey, where I hope to express the ups and downs of every occasion as accurately and honestly as I possibly can.”
