Shaya teaches us how to chop an onion to get perfect results.
Chef Shaya Klechevsky is a combination gourmet chef/food nerd who loves to spout wisdom about the chemical makeup of spinach almost as much as he loves to saute, chiffonade and butterfly. Shaya gifts us with both elegant and down-home recipes, as well as insights into cooking well and eating wonderfully. He grew up in a home rich in diverse cultures; his mother, an Egyptian native, and his father, a Polish native, brought an interesting mix of food and flavor to every meal. Fostered by his upbringing, after attending Brooklyn College where he achieved a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Health & Nutrition Sciences, Chef Shaya found his way to the French Culinary Institute at the International Center for Culinary Arts in New York City's vibrant SoHo. There, he learned the secrets to French cooking and fused his classic training with his background in Middle Eastern/Mediterranean and Eastern European cuisine resulting in flavorful combinations of ingredients. With Shaya's passion for good food and a healthy lifestyle, he finds ways to bring healthy, kosher, gourmetcuisine to his clients. To learn more about shaya visit atyourpalate.com
