Andrew Talks to Chefs

Episode 134: Einat Admony (Balaboosta & other restaurants, NYC)

Episode Summary

Einat Admony of Balaboosta, Kish Kash, & Taim restaurants in NYC discusses her life, career, & participation in S.Pellegrino's Destination Dining series.

Episode Notes

From a childhood in Israel, to life as a street seller in Germany, to jobs in top New York City kitchens to success as chef-owner of Taim, Balaboosta, and Kish Kash, chef Einat Admony is an open book. On this episode, she opens up to Andrew about how being a middle child set the tone for her life; why she loves cooking; what it was like to serve in the Israeli military; and the twist of fate that led her to her husband and business partner. Oh, and she's also an amateur stand-up comic. All that and more in this action-packed hour.

Einat is also participating in S.Pellegrino’s (our promotional partner) inaugural Destination Dining series, in which pairs of restaurants on the East and West Coasts exchange dishes for one week each.
