Eyal Liebman is a Toronto-based Private Chef who believes in rocking the boat when it comes to the Toronto food industry: "Food & Art do not exist outside of Politics." To be an artist is to be a responsible human, and to be a responsible human is to be a critical human, which in this case involves sourcing ethically raised produce & establishing connections with and supporting other artists in our like-minded journeys.

Eyal chooses to care about the meal in its entirety. In this way, Eyal’s food crosses a line into critical art – in the ways the ingredients are sourced, why certain dishes are included in a menu at certain dinner tables with certain people, the messages conveyed through beautiful plates ... it all has intentional meaning and storyline. The narrative of every menu Eyal creates never repeats and is best described as consistently inconsistent - there is only one original menu for each event.

Eyal believes that it’s hard to convince people that food can be an art medium beyond the fact of pretty plates and that food is cultural and has so much to do with politics.
