LiLiving For Cocktails Logotype in hand made lettering remembering an Art Nouveau Calligraphy


Nhomade chefs Matan Zaken and Baptiste Bouland are our guest for this edition of Art Cocktail Club Chefs Collection.

We worked with Nhomade for a private dinner with cocktail pairings in September and we took the opportunity to interview them about their work.

While one was experimenting recipes involving liquid nitrogen, the latter was trying to enhance a vegetable without spoiling its nature.

Baptiste is a scientific mind. His endless creativity pushed him to leave the chemisty labs behind to enroll in the globally-known Ferrandi school.

Having French and Israeli roots, Matan polished his skills between London and Paris between highly regarded cooking schools and Michelin-starred star venues.

His cuisine reflects his mixed background, his globe-trotting profile and his taste for nature.
