Q & A with Chef Subar

1. Culinary background:

I started cooking when I was 16, working in a large catering company in NYC/NJ. My passion and curiosity for food and cooking encouraged me to study food. I also own my own company, called S. Subar & Co, doing high-profile dinner parties.

2. Favorite comfort food:

My mother’s grilled chicken drumsticks with BBQ sauce she made for Shabbos with a Swedish-style squash ratatouille.

3. Favorite ingredients:

Syrah wine, pasta, rustic French baguette, quality cheese.
