Yoav Schverd is an LA based private chef and culinary consultant who specializes in fresh, healthy and tasty food. Hailing from Tel Aviv, Yoav’s food is a culmination of the vast cultures he grew up around, which include many Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, European, Asian and African influences. Like many, perhaps his most significant influences come from his home life. At the age of 4, Yoav regularly went fishing with his father and learned how to catch, and clean a fish before learning how to read. It was seeing his mother prepare the fish for dinner that inspired his love for cooking.
“I have this memory of my dad coming back from the Jaffa port with couple of fish in his bag and some ice. Mom was frying the fish, straight from the sea, as fresh as it can be. The house was full of that m smell. I can still feel it.”
After the army, Yoav graduated from Israel’s law school, Bar Ilan University. He then passed the bar exam and went on to never practice a day of law, but rather focus on his culinary career. In Israel Yoav has learned from some of the best chefs, opened several bars and restaurants, worked on cooking shows and even won the Israeli version of “The Bachelorette.”
Since moving to the Beverly Hills in 2016, Yoav has found success as a private chef to the stars and the upper echelon of Los Angeles as well as a culinary consultant to hotels and restaurants.
Additionally, Yoav co-founded Chef 2 Door, a meal prep service that focuses on tasty and nutritionally balanced, yet affordable chef-made meals. Consistently donating his time to charitable causes, including being auctioned off for Tilly’s Life Center, Yoav strives to make the world smile with his cooking.
