Nicer Chef

A unique culinary journey led by the world’s best chefs took place last week in Provence, France, concluding an extraordinary project held in recent months at NICE, one of the world’s leading Israeli technology companies. In the framework of a competition called “Nicer Chef” initiated by the company – currently estimated to be worth $8.5 billion –  its 6,000 staff were asked to create winning dishes consisting of pre-determined ingredients and document their preparation process. The 50 winners were chosen by the renowned chefs who were to attend the exceptional week in Provence.

 The company’s CEO, Barak Eilam, attended the culinary celebration and, together with the chefs, noted the extraordinary creativity demonstrated by the winners in preparing their dream dish. “The competition is an expression of what makes us unique as a society – innovation and perfect performance in everything we do” said Eilam.

 The chefs who participated in the special project and led the culinary journey included: chef Tom Colicchio, the renowned American culinary celebrity chef, who has been crowned America’s best chef many times and has been a judge for several seasons on the program, Top Chef; chef Massimo Bottura, the amazing chef of the three Michelin-star restaurant in Italy, Osteria Francescana, that won the title of ‘Best Restaurant in the World’ last year; chef Graham Eliot, the legendary judge of the American Master Chef program. His first restaurant, named after him, was among the 15 select American restaurants to be awarded two Michelin stars; chef Kunal Kapur, award-winning chef, instructor and judge of Master Chef India, has even created the tallest chocolate tower in the country. Noted chef Haim Cohen joined the event to represent the magic touch of Israeli cuisine.

 During the week, competition winners participated in a variety of events and experiences – from cooking lessons conducted by the chefs, dinners prepared by them and visits to vineyards and spectacular markets to exploring the local cuisine.


Giorgio Armani Beauty

Armani Beauty, the beauty brand of Italian fashion house Giorgio Armani, recently held the grand opening of a new store in the Ramat Aviv Mall in Tel Aviv. The theme of the opening event was the ‘World of Cinema,’ which is a beloved subject of the Italian designer, and the design of the newly opened store features this theme throughout. Model Bar Refaeli, together with Eli Sagiv, CEO of L’Oreal Israel, cut the ribbon to inaugurate the new store.
