(NENI Hamburg)

All dishes are a tribute to Haya Molcho's love of cooking and to her family. NENI is the initials of her sons Nuriel, Elior, Nadiv and Ilan. Haya Molcho leaves no doubt that the family business is a true affair of the heart: "I am us," says the lively entrepreneur, building a bridge to her own childhood in Tel Aviv. Here she learned to know and love cooking and eating as a communal ritual. And so NENI cultivates eating together, sharing food and celebrating pleasure in a most congenial way.
