When his lucrative IT career comes to an end, 44-year-old family man Nimrod takes an unexpected decision: starting over as a lowly prep cook at a trendy restaurant in Tel Aviv. Learning how to cook professionally is hard enough but just as challenging is dealing with his new colleagues – chef/owner Dori, whose huge talent is overshadowed by an even bigger ego, and Sara, who sees Nimrod as more than just a workmate. Taking us behind the scenes of this extremely competitive world, The Chef is the TV equivalent of a delicious Michelin-starred meal, better watched on a full stomach.

Warning: Series contains scenes of a sexual nature.

Boxset includes 9 x episodes, 35-45 minutes each.

Don’t miss this special – and very personal – recorded Q&A with The Chef‘s director Erez Kav-el and Honey&Co.’s head chefs and founders Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich as they discuss inspiration for the characters, their real-life collaborations and pressure and passion in the kitchen, with The Jewish Chronicle’s food editor Victoria Prever.
