About Your Instructor



Jack Ben-Harari is a chef in the tradition of Carême and Escoffier. Eschewing academies and industrial training in favor of lived experience, collegial mentorship, and direct sensuality, Jack has apprenticed in the kitchens of New York Times favorites Clay, Deli Kasbah and Sushi Metsuyan; developed speed, organization, and consistency catering 50+ events in New York City (including for FED!); and curated a kaleidoscopic aesthetic palate traveling the globe from Israel and the Levantine, the Altiplano and the Pampas of South America, and the Far East. Jack’s current passion project is to distill his vast experience into a simple, comprehensive meditation that allows you not to copy a recipe or style, but to realize your own.
