Cucina Tamar Restaurant Review

: When Tamar Cohen-Tzedek went to Italy to study to be a veterinarian, she discovered the culinary culture of the country and was instantly hooked. After her studies, she worked in kitchens in Bologna and Modena, to learn authentic, rustic country-style cooking. After five years honing her skills, Cohen-Tzedek returned to Tel Aviv and in 2008 she debuted her first restaurant. One of the best items on the menu is a rich, hearty bowl of oxtail consommé, a complex version of an Italian classic. “Tartufo Ravioli” is a luxurious dish, a house-made ravioli filled with Parmesan, ricotta and truffle. Liver tagliolini is also available. Cohen-Tzedek’s desserts include revolving selections of velvety ice cream, made in-house; or choose from a solid selection of dessert wine or grappa.
