Israeli InterContinental to host multi-Michelin chef experience

(InterContinental David Tel Aviv Taste of Michelin )

The InterContinental David Tel Aviv (Israel) will host three master chefs from Marseille, Berlin and Amsterdam for a three-week Taste of Michelin festival. From Jan. 9-29, visitors will experience five-course tasting menus showcasing the works of epicurean wonder by each chef in the hotel’s Aubergine restaurant.

Each of the chefs will prepare cuisine inspired by their own interpretation of the Israeli culinary scene. This will be the first ever multi-Michelin chef experience to come to Israel.

"We are greatly looking forward to welcoming each of the three Michelin chefs to Tel Aviv this January for the first Taste of Michelin festival,” said David Cohen, general manager of the InterContinental David Tel Aviv Hotel. “This is a unique gourmet dining experience for all that will bring Kosher food diversity at the Michelin caliber. Aubergine prides itself on its avant-garde cuisine and we are certain that the festival take us to the next level.”

The first chef to arrive will be Eberhard Lange of the InterContinental Berlin’s Hugos restaurant. Aubergine will feature Lange’s delicacies from Jan. 9-15. Under Lange’s leadership, Hugos is the highest-rated restaurant in Berlin. From Jan. 16-19, Lionel Levy from InterContinental Marseille (France) will serve as the chef-in-residence. Levy is the head chef of the hotel’s Alcyone restaurant and is regarded as the leader of the new Mediterranean cuisine. The last chef taking part in the Taste of Michelin festival is Chef Roger Rassin, from the InterContinental Amsterdam’s La Rive, from Jan. 23-29. In 2013, Rassin was awarded the title of SVH Master Chef, the highest possible culinary honor in the Netherlands.

Inspired by its location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the InterContinental David Tel Aviv delivers elegant contemporary interiors and seasonal cuisine. The hotel offers 555 guestrooms (39 of which are suites). Various dining options include the Aubergine gourmet restaurant and Inca Casa del Habano Cigar bar.
