Ugot, cakes in Hebrew, a simple word that concentrates the infinite passion I have for the world of sweets.
Since I was 15 years old, I knew what I wanted to create in my life and I dreamed of having one day my little place where people will eat, drink and taste “talking” food, in an environment that sparks the imagination.
I am from Israel, from a culture of hospitality and from home, in which food is the center of life.
My mom, Rachel, taught me love of feeding. The respect that must be applied to the ingredients, from choosing them in the market to creating with them everything that can come to mind. She taught me to be patient (which I always lacked …) and at the same time play with food and dare to combine flavors that come from another culinary culture, with ours.
She did not learn to cook professionally and even that, she is the best cook I know. I teach myself what they don’t teach in any school – that food is a feeling, an international language that is sometimes expressive more than words.
With humility, it is what we try to do every day at Ugot bruncherie, with a team of good and creative people, who do not cost them laughter and smiles, we eat, not just fill the belly.
