After winning the Israeli Masterchef in 2013, the German-born Tom Franz has taken the culinary world by storm. His combination of modern cooking techniques, traditional German fare, and kosher food wowed the judges of the show, with one of them praising him as ‘accurate in a way that only a German can be’. Now he is one of the leading authorities on Israeli and kosher cuisine, creating dishes that range from haute to homely.

True to form, we collaborated with Tom to create some simple and traditional kosher recipes, such as a hearty hummus soup with spinach and some spicy cinnamon-stick kebabs. For those with a sweet tooth, he gives us a modern fusion of the local with the Levant, a delicious Nutella baklava.
