Pomella is a taste, a scent, and a feeling. It’s a sense of place, belonging, and community. It’s delicious Israeli food, made from whole ingredients that are locally sourced, and shared with others. Pomella is drawn from tradition, but not bound by it. We combine favorite, familial, Middle Eastern flavors with community and sustainability.
There is great importance to the fact that chefs such as Ottolenghi and Solomonov, and even me, are not residing in Israel and haven’t for a while. We get to reminisce on the flavor of our childhoods while using the best ingredients and best techniques not widely used in our country of origin. We bring something to the table that is more appealing and approachable to our Western audience.
