Growing up in Tel Aviv, I was lucky to be surrounded by a large family who knew how to make the most of the incredible ingredients available locally and found inspiration from cuisines from a variety of backgrounds, namely Iraqi, from my dad’s side of the family, Yemeni, Turkish – from my mum’s side – as well as Persian and Moroccan.
After travelling in India in my early 20s, I returned home and started working at a bakery, where I got my first

I would highly reccomend this cook. Apart from the friendly service, the food is just great: authentic, flavoursome and well presented. I used for a small party of 12 people and it was so much easier and tastier than me cooking for everyone! Would recommend.
I\'d been meaning to try Tomer\'s Friday Feast for some time and it definitely exceeded expectations. There were 4 of us and we wanted to collect on Friday afternoon to eat with friends later that evening. Tomer carefully arranged the food so we could reheat the bread and main course when we were ready. It made it all so easy and leisurely - definitely the best way to entertain at the end of a long weekThe starter was a selection of dips and pickles and they were all delicious, with the softest, puffiest Moroccan white roll. The Ras-el-Hanout mixed grill main course was huge and a real treat. I always think a mixed grill can be meaty mess, but each item was uniquely flavourful and moist, with masses of griddled vegetables, a slaw and 2 sauces. The Basbousa semolina cake dessert was juicy and fruity with orange....we all loved it.Portions were so generous that we had it all again last night, and still have dips leftover.I wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend Tomer\'s Friday Feast menu to anyone....and it was exceptional good value at £22 per head.
Lovely fresh and delicious food - we were promised a feast and definitely had one! (enough between two for dinner and lunch the next day!). Smooth and chunky spicy squash soup followed by the most savoury lamb-stuffed aubergine, beautifully spiced and deep in flavour, just perfectly offset by little pickled veg (carrots?). and then a fabulous sort of baklava/baba cake (hard to describe!) for pudding (one between two!) - sweet, syrupy and smooth with a lovely tahini sauce providing the contrast - so much more complex than the now-ubiquitous salt caramel. I love discovering new foods! Tomer is a lovely man and the whole pickup was very easy. Thank you Tomer!
A lovely variety of ingredients, which complimented each other in the main dish. A really good option for a dinner party with generous portions and great flavours. I will definitely be ordering again. Thank you Tomer.
