Growing up in Galilee and Jerusalem respectively, Loren and Daniel have long been inspired by Israel’s melting pot of culinary backgrounds and the rich mix of culinary immigrant traditions. In this sense, food has always been imbued with a deeper sense of memory and emotion. Loren and Daniel prefer to cook in different locations, adapting the food to fit the setting. Whether that’s outside in a field, in a reclaimed warehouse, or the intimate setting of the home, guests receive genuine food to match a unique experience.
