MOSHE WENDEL

Moshe Wendel, owner and head chef of Pardes restaurant in Brooklyn, New York, takes culinary risks in the kitchen every day. Wendel and his wife, Shana, opened Pardes in 2010 and the reviews have been exemplary. Wendel changes his menu almost every day based on what’s fresh and uses the highest quality ingredients to serve innovative dishes rarely seen in the kosher world. From Confit of Turkey with Seaweed Mustard to Rhubarb Tarte Tatin with Duck Fat Pate Sucre, you will never get bored by Moshe’s creativity and talent.
