His passion for food came early in life, following his father from the garden to the kitchen in California.
After studying organic farming in Israel, Reuben honed his techniques with a classical culinary education in California, France and Italy. In California, he trained under Chef Laurent Brazier. He then earned an award of excellence at the Italian Culinary Institute.
