OUR STORY

We bring you traditional flavours and spices, served up in innovative mezze style feast inspired by the rich traditions of the northern coast of Africa and throughout The Levant.


Building on Shiri and Amir's deep knowledge of Mediterranean cooking and years of research and travel, our menu features shared small plates of authentic and creative fare, making Maghreb one of the most exciting Middle Eastern food ventures in London. 

We provide boutique private dining experiences, menu development, and culinary consultations for restaurants and food ventures.

Who We Are

CHEF AMIR BATITO

Born and raised in Israel, I was fascinated by cooking ever since I was a little boy. I still cannot say who was a better cook - my mum or my grandma - but they both taught me a lot. 

After travelling the world, I returned to Israel and studied pastry in Israel's largest culinary school. I may have started my path in the kitchen as a pastry chef, but I was drawn to the other side of the kitchen quite quickly. 

After working with the Machneyuda group followed by launching one of Israel's finest boutique hotel, I settled in the UK and have worked with renowned companies such as Jamie Oliver and Tony Page.

For me, Maghreb is a way to connect to people, exploring and discovering new flavours.

CHEF SHIRI KRAUS

Passionate about culinary arts from a young age, I have studied and trained with some of Israel's finest chefs and bakers. My greatest passion is baking, but I'm a true food explorer, and I specialise in Levantine and Middle Eastern cuisines. I've been a sous chef at London's finest restaurants (Palomar, The Barbary) - and after becoming a head chef (Haya Notting Hill) have decided to take a step back and return to my roots. I'm passionate about food education, and what makes me happy is to watch empty plates licked clean going back to the kitchen. Maghreb is the type of kitchen that brings people together, and touches everyone in the deepest way possible.

We understand how truly important our mission is. We are here to bring a smile to people’s faces, an edible hug, a moment of nostalgic comfort, a craving from a beloved food memory.
We believe that food brings people together, so we've created an experience that connects people with their greatest food memories, encounters and desires. 
Our mission is to bring you comfort through food.
Whatever you dream of. 
Wherever you are.
