Private Chef In Jerusalem

Chef Yehudah Kleiman

Get to know me better

I'm a Chef from Jerusalem that has been living and cooking at the Machne Yehudah Market for the last 10 years, for me this is where food begins.

I am a homegrown Chef from the outskirts of Jerusalem. My mom's kitchen is where I learned to shop for produce, cut, cook and most importantly Clean! Every Friday my siblings and I would charge in to the kitchen and make food and clean for the Sabbath, that's where it all started. Fast forward and at the age of 22 I started working for a small Italian restaurant in the Machne Yehudah Market. After a year and a half I felt it was time for me to step up and decided to go work for Assaf Granit in his restaurant "Machneyuda". There I have been working for the past 9 years, starting out as a line cook, followed by becoming a sous-chef to Assaf. Later on I had been in charge of his central catering kitchen, lastly for the past two years I have had the joy and privilege of being Head Chef of the Machneyuda restaurant. Now I am a Private Chef seeking to bring you the same joy and experience at your own home.
