Get to know me better
Professional chef obsessed with healthy local products and world cuisines.
Now the chef/owner of Culinart Kosher private catering services, Marc started out at the bottom of the foodservice industry ladder in New York. He held every position from deli clerk to restaurant manager, and steadily worked his way to the top to apprentice under the most skilled chefs at the forefront of the New York kosher culinary industry.
Eventually, Marc made aliyah to Neve Daniel in Gush Etzion with his family, and, for practical reasons, became a skilled web database programmer. But his passion for food won out, and after an extended hiatus, Marc established Culinart Kosher here in Israel in order to live out his dream, and to share his skills and knowledge with others.
Marc's high standards for "real ingredients" has compelled him to build a brick smoker and miniature greenhouse in his own backyard, which overlooks a spectacular view of the Judean hills all the way to the Mediterranean. He cures his own deli meat and includes his home-grown, organic herbs and vegetables— especially hot peppers—in his cooking.
His first published cookbook, "Kitchen Confident – Cooking Without Reservation," was privately published to rave reviews, and contains over 240 recipes, articles, tips, and tricks on gaining confidence in the kitchen. It includes basic recipes that are the foundation of home cooking, as well as more sophisticated culinary recipes he crafted from his long and intensive experience as a professional chef.
