After everyone gathers, has a drink and a few snacks, the action starts. Guests are divided into groups (the number of groups depends upon the number of participants) and each group receives the same menu with the same recipes and instructions for preparing the dishes on the menu. The clock is ticking, the ingredients are arranged on the table, and the teams break into action. The chef and his team guide the participants throughout the entire cooking process, and encourage all of the participants to improvise freely.
At the end of allotted time – you’ll never believe how fast it flies – the chef judges the portions, declares the winning team, and everyone enjoys the meal they all cooked together. With a fine glass of wine in hand, even the team that doesn’t win feels victorious.
Beyond the culinary delights and the new recipes that you can prepare in your own kitchen, the Iron Chef event is an invigorating break from the usual office routine. It brings people closer together, and creates a shared experience that is will always be fun to remember.
In autumn 2013, Bulthaup Israel welcomed a new member to its family – the Culinary Academy.
We believe that food is a language that connects people, and that with the proper knowledge, anyone can set amazing dishes on the table.
The Culinary Academy offers a fresh approach to learning culinary skills and hospitality. Our workshops give participants the opportunity to be acquainted with various cuisines from Israel and around the world.
The workshops have been built to enrich participants’ cooking skills, enabling each and every participant to apply the techniques that they learn here in their own home kitchens.
The Bulthaup Culinary Academy creates an environment that respects the creative and practical process of food-making. We work with tools and ingredients that are easily available and inexpensive, but we never compromise on freshness and quality.
In addition to our diverse workshops, we also offer tailor-made private events in which participants can host and participate, taste, sip, relax and enjoy great food. We know that at good meals and social outings, atmosphere is just as important as taste. That’s why when you come to our workshops and events, you don’t just learn and eat; you also enjoy authentic hospitality and excellent wine that never stops flowing. You’re invited to a few hours of relaxation and pleasure around the Academy table.
The head of the culinary staff at the Bulthaup Culinary Academy is Chef Avner Laskin, who believes food is the best way to connect with people. At the age of 23, Avner opened his first restaurant, Bix, at the Tel Aviv Marina, serving Mediterranean food with a distinct Italian influence.
Avner later expanded his culinary skills by studying baking and cooking in France, where he focused on handmade bread-making. When he returned to Israel, Avner founded the Tel Aviv De Luca restaurant. Over the past decade, Avner has published more than 20 books on baking and cooking that are sold across Israel and around the world.
Avner specializes in Mediterranean baking and cooking, and advocates using local best-quality ingredients, including fresh sea fish, excellent vegetables, high-quality olive oil and fresh herbs. “The raw materials are my palette of colors, as an artist,” says Avner. This is the spirit that guides the work at the Academy.
