About Chef Raisie

A New York native of Lebanese-Jewish background, Chef Raisie Saad is the face behind CedarStar Catering. Her cooking is the combination of a love of contemporary cuisine mixed with a respect for her ancestry. Raisie studied at the Bishulim Culinary Institute of Tel Aviv, and worked as a cook in restaurants both in Tel Aviv and New York City. 

Raisie's weekly meal service is an ode to the Sabbath food she grew up eating. Place your order so you and your family can try her home-style cooking.*
