For most of my life I have tried to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible to avoid the stigma of the “little Israeli housewife” (oh yes I was born in Israel, “the land of plenty”).
I spent 6 years at The Open University in Israel studying and completing my B.A. in Psychology and Education and the day I handed my final Uni assignment in 2003, I left Israel to live in Australia (now that is the land of plenty!).
Oh, I forgot to mention that I was 5 months pregnant when landing in Down Under. As many of you know being pregnant comes with particular food cravings. I was craving the cuisine I grew up with, Moroccan food, and I couldn’t find it anywhere in Australia! So, I asked my family to send me some recipes and I started to cook and very well. I never really stopped since.
I completed my chef’s certificate, I owned my own coffee shops for years, catering businesses, cooking classes, private chef services and the list goes on. I always practiced yoga and in 2014 I decided to indulge my passion and become a Hatha yoga teacher. Now I am fortunate enough to offer my catering services and cooking classes at retreats and workshops.
