Israeli chef Shalom Kadosh of Jerusalem has recently joined "Club des Chefs des Chefs" -- a prestigious group of chefs whose members cook for monarchs and heads of State. Kadosh is the first Israeli to be accepted to the club.
"Club des Chefs des Chefs" was found in 1977 in a luxury restaurant in France. Gilles Bragard, the owner of a chefs' fashion design house, invited 12 chefs of a few heads of state to a friendly dinner in which they shared cooking tips and anecdotes.
Following the evening's success, they decided to form a club of chefs cooking for monarchs and heads of state. At the moment it includes about 30 members, including the chefs of the French president, the queen of England and the White House.
The club members hold annual reunions, and once a year they are hosted by a head of state for whom they prepare a selection of delicacies.
