Salad ingredients | Serves two


100 g spiced Labane

200 g Artichokes Alla Romana sliced

A handful of arugula roughly chopped

A handful of young zucchini thinly sliced

1/4 red onion sliced into rings

12 oregano leaves

1/4 Squeezed lemon

3 tbsp olive oil

A handful of grated parmesan

Sliced chilli (according to taste)

Atlantic salt


Labane ingredients (spices):

 1/4 onion thinly chopped

8 oregano leaves thinly chopped

Chilli thinly chopped (according to taste)




Preparation

One of the key ingredients of this life-changing dish is Labane - a thick yoghurt-based cheese which is very tasty and easy to prepare; Stir salt into the yoghurt. Line a wire mesh strainer with either cloth (at least two layers) or paper towels. Place over a bowl, spoon into the strainer, cover loosely and let cool overnight (about 8 hours). Once ready, the bowl will contain much of the Whey, which should be discarded. Once the Labane is ready, mix it with the spices and set aside. Mix all salad ingredients in a deep bowl, add squeezed lime, olive oil and continue mixing.

SHANI AHIEL: THE FACE BEHIND YAFO

_DSC9577_02

It is hard to stay unmoved while talking to Shani Ahiel, the co-founder of Berlin's Yafo and the recent Shishi restaurants. With a big smile and a positive approach, it is clear to see why both restaurants are so successful and attract so much attention.

Shani, 32, grew up in Even Yehuda, a small village near Tel-Aviv, Israel. After moving to Tel-Aviv, a city known for its vivid food culture, she started working in the gastronomy field. Gaining years of experience in top restaurants, like the legendary Nanuchka, shaped her motivation and passion for the industry. 'For four years I worked closely with Nana (founder of Nanuchka) who has a very strong and fearless personality'...'and I believe working alongside her gave me a lot of courage to do it myself'. A few years ago Shani moved to Berlin and decided to open a restaurant with two other partners. 'When I first moved to Berlin I felt there was something missing in the local hospitality scene' she recalls. 'wherever I went I felt a certain inconvenience... everything was too functional... a restaurant is a restaurant, a bar is a bar and a club is a club'. Shani's idea was to create a place that combines it all - "organised chaos" as she calls it. Starting Yafo - and later on Shisi - was a pure manifestation of this brilliant idea. These are places where you can come for tea during the day, dinner in the evening, or a cocktail and dancing at night.

The future is bright for Shani. She plans to focus on ‘connecting what I do to female empowerment'. 'I feel committed to promoting the idea of having more women at the top level of the hospitality business'...'most restaurants are owned by men and this needs to change'. Regarding future plans for her business, they are still being 'cooked' as Shani says and promises more exciting things to come. We can’t wait.
