It could be said that 2012 was the year known more for what didn’t happen instead of what did. Most notably, the Mayans had it wrong, or we interpreted it incorrectly, and the world didn’t come to an end. After an eventful 2011, 2012 was quiet and stagnant in comparison. In fact, the culinary scene here in Tel Aviv reflected that very energy and it seemed that innovation was sparse and infrequent.

However, it is in the darkest nights that the stars shine the brightest and those who rose up this year, really left a deep impression and it was the ladies that led the way. Hats off to the women who paved the way in 2012 for leading us into 2013 with the example that quality, creativity and hard work are essential elements in any phenomenal dining experience.
