Member business profile – Tal Buchnik, Chef at Merivale

I was born and raised in Israel, started cooking at the age of 13 at a local street food shop. After year and a half in the Israeli army I went straight back in the kitchen working in an Italian restaurant in Tel Aviv. After just over a year working my way up to a sous chef position there, I decided to relocate to Sydney and started my studies at Le Cordon Bleu.

Iโ€™ve now been with Merivale for 5 years and after 2.5 years as a Sous Chef at Mr. Wong, We have opened Jimmyโ€™s Falafel, a take away falafel and middle eastern eatery that I am very looking forward to re open.

What am I doing during isolation?

To keep occupied during COVID-19, I started Dinner By Buchnik, a take away and delivery business selling Middle Eastern-home made meals.

The dinner package offers a meal for 2 and the menu is changing on a weekly basis. The menu is inspired by memories from home, which of course includes a crispy, juicy green falafel.

This helps me to stay connected to my suppliers that are also in need of our support and also keeping myself occupied for the time being.
Iโ€™m very thankful for the support that I had so far and will keep working hard to deliver the best I possibly can.

I find isolation as a great time to self reflect, reconnect to my family (on FaceTime) and of course exercise more and stay healthy.

Stay home, stay safe, exercise, eat falafel.
