MASTERCHEF EYAL SHANI
A global culinary phenomenon, Chef Eyal Shani is the brains behind more than 40 restaurants worldwide, including fast-casual Miznon and high-energy HaSalon. Now, the celebrity chef brings his signature swagger, bold Mediterranean flavours, and dynamic dining experience to Dubai with the opening of North Miznon at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Dubai Jumeirah Beach
Shani’s culinary passion was first instilled in him by his grandfather, an agronomist and a dedicated vegan. As a child, he would accompany his grandfather to local markets, fields, and vineyards.
In 1989 he opened his first restaurant “Oceanus” in his home town of Jerusalem. There, he developed a unique culinary language based on regional Mediterranean products: olive oil, fish, tahini, fresh seasonal vegetables and of course, the tomato.
Shani’s popularity skyrocketed after starring in the TV series “Food for Thought” and appearing on the panel of judges during the past six seasons of “MasterChef.”
