Food is art and art is my" bread & butter". When I was ten years old I built a model of the Taj Mahal instead of doing my homework. Since then art is my soul. I graduated Baroda University in India with BA degree in art and MA in traditional print techniques. Culinary links embedded in my blood. My father was an organizer of events in the steel factory where he worked as an engineer. So from young age I learned to estimate how much rice is necessary to feed 250 people... In 2001, after a year of volunteer service in Kibbutz Kfar Charov in The Golan Heights I received a scholarship from the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Post Master degree in Art at Bezalel Academy. Since I needed extra income to live I started working at an Indian restaurant in Moshav (village) Even Sapir near Jerusalem. In this picturesque restaurant I gained experience in cooking for large scale events. In 2005 I founded with my Israeli wife, Sigal "The Open House for Indian Culture". Every Thursday we opened our home in Jerusalem, for dinner of vegetarian Thali - a plate of rice, lentil sauce,vegetables dishes and authentic Indian breads. In the summer we host in our garden music, dance performances and lectures on Indian topics along with Indian food. People came also from out of town and often we hosted 60 people in one evening. In 2010, the Jerusalem chapter was over and we located "The Open House for Indian Culture" in a small loft at Florentine neighborhood in TLV. We hosted intimate evenings and weekends Tali meals, gourmet meals for private events and continue to incorporate cultural activities with fine Indian food. 5 month ago we moved to a spacey apartment in the south of Yaffo. We have a roof pacing the beach and a big saloon covered with my big colorful canvas. At the same time I'm organizing a grand opening events which serves a variety of Indian snacks and conduct Indian cooking workshops at our new house in Yaffo.

I enjoyed my time alltogether, food was Ok but not exceptionaly great, also most of it was not served warm enough. The evening title was festive Indian chicken masala or butter chicken, I expected a gravy base dish which was not the case. As for Value for money- slightly over priced.

Sigal and Chanchal were charming hosts and their daughters were gorgeous. Chanchal's cooking was by far the most delicious Indian meal I have ever eaten, not too spicy, not too heavy. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun and it was indeed like a mini trip to India for an evening, highly recommended!

Wow! I just got home from Chanchal & Sigal's and I couldn't wait to express just how amazing it was. This is one dinner experience I want to keep coming back to. The family is warm and inviting, including their two cute daughters that help out with all the cooking and entertaining. The food is authentic and oh so delicious! You will feel like you were in India for at least a few hours :)
