A Dinner for Peace in Tel Aviv
On 1 February 2012, five Chefs des Chefs answered the call of the Shimon Peres Foundation, which works to bring together young people from Palestinian and Israeli communities.
Together they organized a Dinner for Peace in Tel Aviv, which was attended by over 250 people.
The dinner was prepared by Christian Garcia, Chairman of the society and Chef to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Ulrich Kerz, Chef to Chancellor Angela Merkel, Bernard Vaussion, Chef at the Elysée Palace, Tommy Kupradit, Sous-Chef at the White House in Washington, and Jérôme Rigaud, Chef at the Kremlin.
The kitchen team was formed by Palestinian and Israeli chefs who wore the same uniform for the occasion, and so the chef’s jacket became a symbol of peace.
The international press widely reported the event, which was followed by a lunch attended by President Shimon Peres, the five Chefs des Chefs and Gilles Bragard.
