Tour by Aliya

After getting tired of my parents' peanut butter & jelly sandwiches in elementary school, I began experimenting in the kitchen. Since then my passion for cooking creative and delicious food has flourished.

I have broadened my kitchen skill horizons through cooking lessons in India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Morocco. I enjoy experimenting, combining the recipes, exotic flavors, and culturally unique techniques I have encountered throughout my travels. Yet, despite my world travels, I have a particular passion for Israeli fusion and often work with flavors brought here from the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe.

Join me, and awaken your senses through the fresh zest of Citrus & Salt.

An aromatic & flavourful itntroduction to Middle Eastern cooking
I really enjoyed my cooking lesson! The instructor was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and explained me a lot of bits and pieces about cooking techniques and Middle Eastern flavors. She recommended me some great local spices to buy, which I already use in my cooking. The final results were delicious- may I say I had two dinners that night... Thank you!
Aliya is absolutely amazing! I took one of her classes to learn how to make traditional Tibetan Momos, with an Israeli twist. She was patient and informative, explaining to our group each of the different spices and ingredients we'd purchased from the Shuk (market). Her home is so welcoming and gave me a great peep into Florentine living. Thank you for such a fun cooking experience! I'll definitely be making these back home! 10/10 would recommend!
Aliya is an incredible chef! Her cooking is not only delicious, but it spans various cultures and cuisines. She graciously catered a meal for the Israel National Lacrosse team, and it was truly amazing. I still dream about her stuffed grape leaves!
