HaChef HaYo­shev

The Jerusalem Post - The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - TOUR ISRAEL - Trans­lated by Han­nah Hochner.

Wine is a very im­por­tant part of life in the Golan Heights, but the re­gion is also known for its top-qual­ity meat restau­rants. A new type of eat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that is be­com­ing pop­u­lar is be­ing hosted in the pri­vate homes of chefs. One such place is HaChef HaYo­shev, a.k.a. Guy Elazari and his wife Liat. Guy re­ceived this nick­name (“the Seated Chef”) since he gets around in a wheel­chair. Guy and Liat pre­pare all the food in their home in Kela Alon and serve guests in their din­ing room or gar­den (weather per­mit­ting).

They use only the best cuts of meat and locally grown fresh fruits and veg­eta­bles and olive oil. They can ac­com­mo­date groups up to 20 peo­ple and Guy is known for his en­ter­tain­ing sto­ries and ex­cit­ing con­ver­sa­tions with guests. Meals, which are held only twice a month and are ac­com­pa­nied by Bazelet wines, cost NIS 250 to NIS 350 per per­son.
