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". We host in our home Indian dinner with lectures on Indian culture & classical Indian music & dance performances. In 2012 we moved to Yaffo in south TLV. We are living in an authentic Arbic house that I renovated with recycled materials and full with my art on the walls. Dinner is hosted in our patio and we love to sit & talk with our guests about art & life when dinner is over.
