About the Location

At 19, Tali began her professional studies at “Hadassah” College in Jerusalem and continued her training at “Lenôtre” cheffing school in Paris.  Upon her return, she worked with some of the best chefs in Israel, including Ezra Kedem at Restaurant “Arcadia”, Eyal Shani at “Okyanus” and Rafi Cohen at “La Regence” of “King David Hotel”. During this time, she became very attracted to Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda Market.

Today, Tali is the owner of The Atelier in the Jerusalem Mahane Yehuda Market. The Atelier is heavily influenced by fresh and seasonal ingredients with a meticulous emphasis on simple Mediterranean
cuisine and the delicious flavors of my youth.
