For the past year, Israeli artist Einat Peled has been involved in a dream job. She was tapped to create drawings for a book celebrating the 10th anniversary of Manta Ray, one of the hottest waterfront restaurants in Tel Aviv.  The book, which was written and photographed by Manta Ray’s owners, Ofra and Avi Ganor and designed by Michal Suday, is part cookbook, part art book, part travelogue, part love letter to the sea and sun.

Einat wandered the beach, much as her charming sketches wander the pages of the book, taking photos and gathering source material for her work.  And, of course, research involved lots of observation in the kitchen and eating in the dining room.

“The location of the restaurant is interesting too- it is located on Tel Aviv beach exactly at the spot where Tel Aviv and Jaffa connect, so this beach is very special because Jews and Arabs and tourists all mingle there peacefully.”

“It's not an ordinary cookbook but it's more about the spirit of the restaurant, about the people who work there, about the year's seasons and how they reflect on their beach...”  Einat’s drawings were put back to work on promotion cards (designed by Danny Meirav / Hatayas) for the restaurant and book.
