"As I have the high expectation of what I do I also have the high expectation of the cookware I am working with. I have pieces of All-Clad that are over 20 years old. Still work great and look like new.”


All-Clad Must Haves

These are the pieces Chef Einat Admony told us she can’t live without, both at home and in her restaurant kitchens.

Exclusive Recipes

Signature dishes developed by Einat Admony using her favorite All-Clad cookware of course.

Chicken and Israeli Couscous

I wanted to create a meal that doesn't need more than one pan without compromising my flavors and the high expectations of my spoiled family. I found a way to put all of the things that my kids love in one pan.

Spicy Moroccan Fish

This dish is almost mandatory at my Shabbat dinner, it's part of my new family tradition. I make this dish very spicy for my daughter.

Jerusalem Artichoke Latkes with Preserved Lemon Yogurt

A classic Chanukah dish with a delicious Israeli twist. The preserved Lemon Yogurt is a great condiment for any occassion!
