Chef Ran Shmueli
Executive Chef Yafit Ida

Ran Shmueli – one of Israel’s longstanding premier chefs, together with Executive Chef Yafit Ida, bring to Maarava a cooking philosophy that blends the simplicity of nature with precision cooking techniques and an added dash of creative flair.
Cooking at Maarava is based on the “Farm-to-Table” philosophy — the use of seasonal produce and ingredients at their height of ripeness and flavor. We grow our vegetables and herbs in Maarava’s gardens and at supplying farms. Our meticulously chosen suppliers bring only the finest meat, fish and produce to your table.
Our closeness to nature and the uncompromising quality of our ingredients allow us to cook a wide variety of dishes using assorted techniques, beautifully presented and brimming with sumptuous tastes and aromas.
