Chef Einat Mazor was born near the Mediterranean, where seasonal, fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables flourish. She forged a strong connection to food and cooking at an early age. This passion shaped her life and career. Although she went on to earn her BA in life science from Tel Aviv University, an MA in business, and worked for a time in the corporate world, she never gave up on her dream of owning a catering place of her own. That wish came true when she became a certified chef at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City. Now, she s a culinary consultant for restaurants and food companies where she specializes in gluten- and dairy-free products.
