Israeli-born Chef Michael Solomonov is behind one of the country’s best restaurants, Zahav, AND one of the reasons we started this podcast. He has multiple concepts around the city of Philadelphia as well as in NYC and Miami. Michael is a four-time James Beard Award winner, including “Outstanding Chef” in 2017 and “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic” in 2011. His philanthropic Rooster Soup Company donates 100% of its profits to support Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens. Solomonov shares some ups and downs throughout his career and how he overcame them to get where he is today. Born in Israel and raised in Pittsburgh, Solomonov frequently travels back to Israel.
