Any true foodie and travel lover has surely at least heard of the iconic Israeli chef Eyal Shani. Eyal Shani is the talented mastermind behind some of Tel Aviv’s, New York’s, Paris, Melbourne, and Vienna’s best restaurants. If you are fortunate enough, then you’ve also surely tried some of Eyal Shani’s unique dishes at his trendy gourmet restaurants. And now, Dana Ben Ami, a student currently studying at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design has come up with a unique art project that incorporates Shani’s work.

Roasted cauliflower with cheese


Ben Ami, an incredibly talented student has decided to do good for the world while helping us benefit at the same time by adding a unique and cute touch to our outfits.  She took a special enamel course with the aim of creating brooches (typically worn on jackets, dresses, hats, sweaters, and so on) in honor of the one and only famous chef, Eyal Shani. Dana also just so happens to work for Shani as well at Miznon, a popular upscale fast-food joint with steak and egg pitas as well as the most mouthwatering roasted cauliflower in the entire world. 

Dana Ben Ami was inspired by Shani’s passion and dedication for his work, which is why she decided to dedicate three very special brooches to him, one with a tomato (he’s famous for his $24 roasted tomatoes), another with pita bread and lastly, but surely not least – a cauliflower.  She’s created three thousand of these special pins, and all of the proceeds of the sales will go to Latet, a charity in Israel that’s dedicated to feeding the poor. Rumor even has it that more of these brooches will be created – and that there will even possibly be more special designs. What better way to combine art, style, food, and good deeds?
