Who are the famous Isreali Chefs from Middle Feast?

Tommy Marudi was born in Los Angeles, CA. and found interest in cooking at a very young age. He quit school and started working at his uncle’s restaurant in Tel Aviv, IL, there he learned the deepest secrets of the culinary world. When he moved back to L.A he worked at a popular restaurant where he displayed a talent for reinventing dishes, and eventually opened his own kosher establishment, Paprika Grill, which was recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as having the best Israeli breakfast in the city.



Hilla Marudi, Tommy’s sister also moved to L.A and while studying for her degree in 3D Animation, worked together with Tommy in his restaurant. and has a great sense of customer service and sales and developed a big interest in culinary arts as well.

And then there's Arkadi....




Arkadi Kluger has been Tommy and Hilla’s close friend ever since he arrived in the US. Arkadi always had a passion for cooking and giving his own touch to traditional dishes. He believes that flavors can bring people together.
