Culinary Concept

“Varied and precise with lots of color,” this is how Odeon chef, Erez Hadad sees the ideal events menu.

One that will cause the guests to return. “A good menu for an event,” he says, “needs to be varied, precise, fresh, of high quality, with varied flavors, and with lots of color and aroma.”

Odeon’s cuisine – uncompromising raw materials

“It is a great privilege for a chef in the modern world to combine tastes and cultures,” says Erez and adds that as the food in Odeon is not flavored with spices but created using cooking methods that combine fresh raw materials and the use of varied methods, the menu that he has created can be defined as a kind of fusion. It can be said that it is a kind of healthy world cuisine, the next generation of taste, aroma and quality.” In the kitchen, Erez draws inspiration from the ingredients such as: green leaves, herbs, seasonal vegetables, special home-made sauces and dressings, high quality meat, fresh fish fillets, and more. “I find Italian cuisine most challenging,” Erez says. “It is a basic cuisine with simple, high quality ingredients, almost without spices and nevertheless its genius is in its simplicity.”
