I'm  Mashav Shelef

I’m a trained chef, a food writer, a culinary traveler, a food explorer and a mom. 

I was born in Israel, trained in Paris, and now live in San Francisco with my family.

If you’re like me then food is a major part of your life too.

My mission in life is to inspire and motivate people by helping them experience life through food.

How to do that?

Always be tasting: while cooking, when eating out, when traveling

Mashav is fantastic! We took a 6-person food tour around Richmond, and had a blast. It's a great group activity, and Mashav took us to TEN SPOTS where we had samples of delicious food. Mashav is very knowledgeable in everything that has to do with the food scene in Richmond, and her taste is impeccable. Mashav, thank you for a great morning in San Francisco!

Loved the food tour in the Inner Richmond neighborhood.
Mashav introduced to us a variety of foods and restaurants, she was very knowledgeable and professional.

Highly Recommended!
