OWNER & HEAD CHEF
ZION SARRAF

Israeli Restaurant Sydney - Kinneret

“I have always tried to stay true to my roots: simple and delicious food, that is fresh and healthy, that looks as good as it tastes, and which combines the best of Australian produce with a twist of Israeli flair.”

Born in Tiberias, on the shores of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) in northern Israel, Zion grew up in a family of 12 children. Food was at the heart of family life, fresh bread was baked every morning and trips to the market were a daily occurrence.

Zion’s love of food and cooking came from his Moroccan mother “an old-school, intuitive cook who never bothered with recipes,” who taught him the value of quality ingredients, the importance of creativity and how to respect simplicity in preparation.

He has been cooking in Australia for over 30 years, as a chef and caterer, managing functions from dinner parties and corporate boardroom lunches to large scale conferences and events for several thousand people.
