Co-Founder & Operations Manager

Co-founder and head chef, Arkadi Kluger is the creative force behind our culinary operations.  Inspired by Northern California bounty, he crafts unique, seasonal, vegetable-forward menus and stunning presentations.  Arkadi won Food Network’s show The Great Food Truck Race in 2014.  When he’s not creating in the kitchen, he loves playing music or doing woodwork.

Co-founder and managing director Elinor Nahmani is the enthusiastic force that propels us forward.  She manages our events from conception to execution, with meticulous attention to detail. Her passion for food and people is evident in the personal care she gives each customer and in her ability to turn even the wildest dreams into reality.  You can trust this former army officer and UC Berkeley graduate to execute your event successfully beyond all expectations.

"Best food we have had in a long time. Professional, attentive to detail, wants to please, pleasant to work with, clean. The prepared foods have unique flavors that linger on your taste buds."
