I love good food, do you too? Do you still have the memory of the taste of a dish that left you amazed and impressed in the past? Do you love the excitement of tasting new ingredients, combinations and textures? Do you wish to have this sort of culinary experience again or for the first time?

And this time?
This upcoming event is about to be the fourth of its series! Will be all about the connection between Far East-Thai flavors and the Classic French cuisine, combining some Modern cooking techniques. You’ll love it!
The two nights will be Friday the 12th of July, at 20:00 and on Saturday the 13th of July at 19:30, 250 ILS per person + 10% service charge.
Important: It will only be possible to register as a twin ticket because dishes are served between two guests to share.
The price includes a cocktail to set the mood, all dishes of the 8 course menu (served between two guests to share), wine and coffee.

What’s the concept?
The concept of these evenings is simple: giving you the opportunity to taste my cookings, inspired each time by the season and mood, while engaging at a dinner party hosting 12 unfamiliar people, in a unique evening which combines the excitement of new flavors and a completely different type of social event. Each event consists of two similar consecutive evenings, 12 guests per evening. They meet, sometimes for the first time and often find a connecting link, sit down to have a tasting menu dinner, composed fully by me, cooked and served by a small and friendly crew.
The rumor about these events go by hear-say and the number of sits is very limited.
What’s my style of cooking?
I’m cooking seasonal, creative dishes, influenced and inspired from all around the world, brought together by the French cuisine techniques which I studied in Paris. I love trying out new pairings and combinations, new ingredients and techniques from the modern and international cuisine.
Can I see a menu?
Every event the menu changes, and a preliminary version of it is published when registration is opening.
Can I order a dish in advance?
As a guest you can’t order a specific dish out of the menu, as it is a tasting menu dinner.
What if I don’t like something in the menu?
Once registration has opened, everyone can read the preliminary menu to get the feeling of what’s gonna be served in the dinner. If you’re intrigued by it and like it, go for it! If not, maybe wait for next month and a new menu. If you like most of it but not sure about one or two dishes – I would still recommend you to give it a try. You might be surprised when something you thought you wouldn’t like, can be actually not that bad or even delicious! I had many guests admitting they would never had thought of ordering a certain dish from a menu, but they were glad they had the chance to try it out because it blew their minds. In the end, not all dishes are suited to everybody’s taste, but this is the magic with a tasting menu, for one night you give up all control of what you eat and let the chef surprise you!
What if I’m allergic to an ingredient, or have a special dietary restriction?
After the registration process completes, you will receive a link with your tickets. Opening this link you can edit some food and dietary preferences as well as allergies. I will try my best to fit the dinner to your restrictions. Keep in mind that the kitchen can’t be sterile and I can’t protect you if you have a very severe allergy to an ingredient. If it can be very dangerous to you, better be safe.
About special dietary restriction: sometimes I can offer you an alternative for a certain ingredient or just take it off the dish, but sometimes these restrictions are hard to follow in small dinners like these. If you eat Kosher, vegan or vegetarian (not eating even fish) – I would not recommend going to an event like this.
How does registration and payment work?
1-2 weeks before the night of the event the registration opens and the initial menu reveals. Everyone is welcome to buy tickets and invite their friends and family to join as well. I can’t save sits so remember that if you snooze – you loose! Paying in advance via PayPal.
I don’t want to pay online with PayPal! What can I do?
How did guests like the experience?
Read some testimonials!
The dinner is too expensive for me.
In order to try and get each event to turn out as I imagine it, it takes a lot of effort, time and money. Ingredients are top quality and my staff gives them all for the night to succeed. If the event is over your budget you can follow EatingCookingFooding in Facebook and look for promotions that come out from time to time.
