A new culinary experience at Luca
Luca is one of the most impressive and architecturally-unique structures in Israel. It was designed by Architect Yves Anan, a multidisciplinary artist specializing in sculpture, ceramics, engraving and drawing, whose creations have gained him international reputation and impact. The very best in contemporary technological lighting, sound, amplification and projection systems have been integrated at Luca. Luca also leads in innovation in the field of environmental design, landscape, scenery, and its connection with the natural landscape and surroundings of the Sharon region.
I was born in Morocco, in the colorful city of Casablanca, known as a gastronomic center for its unique foods which have won fame across the world.
I owe my love for food and creativity to my mother, whom in my childhood introduced me to rich and varied foods of her making.
Starting 1980 I have been creating and specializing in the field of catering, while even as I starting out, I was appointed as the chef of Gan Oranim, the legendary event venue of Tel Aviv’s bohemian social milieu, until the opening of Luca, a venue always aspiring for excellence without compromise!
I was only 15 when I’d first caught the catering bug, as I joined my father, Rafael, to work in catering.
The fast pace, the smell of the kitchen in the morning and the ceaseless creation, have all stuck with me since then.
I have dreamt of Luca many nights before its opening, of the vision and challenge I am constantly facing, of creating unique and varied hosting experiences in the field of catering and to continue to set Luca as a leader in innovation and uncompromising quality.
As part of the experience at Luca, one may visit the prestigious wine room during the reception, and enjoy tasting wines produced at boutique wineries all over the State of Israel.
