Vered Guttman is an Israeli chef and food writer. She is a regular contributor for Haaretz, where her column on Israeli and Jewish food appeared since 2010. Vered’s writing was also published in the Washington Post, Slate, Moment Magazine and others.

In 2005 Vered launched a catering company and had the pleasure of bringing modern Israeli and Middle Eastern flavors to private parties, diplomatic events, and even to the White House, where she was invited to cook for President Obama’s Passover Seder in 2014.

Growing up in Israel, Vered took her first steps in Jewish cooking at the tables of her two grandmothers, one from Poland, the other from Iraq.
