TALYA'S STORY

Talya is an experienced cook with a certificate from Le Cordon Bleu.

Born in Jerusalem, and having lived in Italy and Greece, Talya's cooking is influenced by her traveling and living in many of the world's culinary capitals and her love of food.

The result is a unique cooking style that combines classic techniques with innovative new taste sensations.

"My passion is to inspire others to cook creatively and recipe free with ease, using the finest, freshest and most exciting seasonal produce."

Experienced cook and caterer Talya runs innovative cookery workshops from her London kitchen, based around the unique idea that guests can be taught to cook in a recipe-free, instinctive way.

Born in Jerusalem, Talya has also lived in Italy, Greece and London and brings her global influences to the table. Workshops are fun, inspiring and inventive, and Talya loves nothing more than passing on her passion for finding the freshest, tastiest produce then creating a delicious, beautifully presented, recipe-free menu.

Talya’s friendly, upbeat approach to worldwide cuisine is offset by a strong classical training from Le Cordon Bleu, and her food combines modern methods with timeless techniques. Her enthusiasm for finding and using fresh, locally sourced food can best be experienced on the Market to Table Tour, which takes guests on an exciting and educational trip around Borough Market then back to her kitchen.

“I love inspiring others to cook creatively and instinctively using their seasonal produce. Everyone has the capacity to cook with flair, it’s simply a case of having the knowledge.” Talya offers workshops from all corners of the globe, creates bespoke catering menus, and can also provide one-to-one sessions from the comfort of your own home.
