Founder & Chef Eli Gilad, Ph.D.
My Mediterranean culinary roots come from a cuisine that emphasizes vegetables, fruits, fish and olive oil. With a wide range of seasonal ingredients available in Northern California year round, whether you are planning a special event for 200 or looking for takeout for 2, my goal is to produce fabulous food to bring a smile to your taste buds!
For many years while a biology research scientist, I cooked privately for the pleasure of nourishing my family and friends. Eventually, I realized that I enjoyed cooking even more than my laboratory work! So, after a long and successful career in biotech, I decided to devote my attention to my other passion – and in 2010 Eli’s Gourmet Cooking was born.
I believe that the same qualities that make a good scientist also make a good chef.
• Detailed knowledge allows me to selectively choose the highest quality ingredients.
• The ability to consider different perspectives allows me to create innovative dishes based upon a solid culinary foundation.
• My commitment to practical know-how and consistent methodology produces reliable top quality dishes. The result is happy customers who return time and time again.
I hope to feed you soon.
