Chef Meny Vaknin

Meny Vaknin, the owner and executive chef of Mishmish Cafe, came to United States from Israel 10 years ago with the dream of becoming a professional chef. He set out to acquire a thorough knowledge of new and classic techniques, graduating with honors from the prestigious French Culinary Institute.

While he employs the skills and expertise acquired in his formal studies, in creating his dishes, he evokes the rich culinary legacy of Morocco that he was taught – with love – from his mother and grandmothers.
