Cocktails party with some Hors d'Oeuvres
Address provided after booking
Hosting and cooking for guests in my home is something I am passionate about, and it is my pleasure to propose some added value to your culinary experience in the form of an evening exposition of my art in a relaxed setting before dinner is served (see menu guidelines below).
Over the past decade, I have created a series of mandalas that channel the power of sacred geometry and vibrant color for depicting abstract philosophical concepts such as the central significance of the Sabbath in Jewish spirituality, the human experiences of sanctity in time and space, and the paradox of free choice and divine providence.
Re-discover Jewish philosophy in an unconventional visual presentation of my mandala series, and learn about the universal significance of this ancient cultural heritage and how it can be applied to our lives.
Signed, limited edition prints are also available to be purchased at discount rates at in-house presentations.For a sneak-peek, you can read about my work at www.zakyitro.com.
My cooking style is adaptable to a wide range of tastes and dietary requirements, and it is my pleasure to customize a meal that will ensure you have the most enjoyable experience possible, Below is a list of dishes I am fond of preparing, but please don't be shy if you would like me to prepare something different! The inspiration for my favorite dishes are handpicked from the international best-selling recipe book "Jerusalem" by Israeli Yotam Ottolenghi and Palestinian Sami Tamimi, featuring delicious dishes from different communities in this fascinating city.
