Growing up in Israel to a Jewish, half-religious family with Italian, Greek, Bulgarian and Polish blood, and being surrounded by smells and colors of the Arabic markets, cooking (and eating!) has always been an obsession for me. Since I was 16 I’ve been working in kitchens, and in the last years I combine my work as a filmmaker alongside teaching cooking in Germany. It is my pleasure to share my knowledge and create, together, a wonderful feast of colors, smells and tastes.
