Sharone studied at Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School (currently known as the Institute for Culinary Education), and holds an M.A. in food studies from New York University. She has been working as a professional chef since 2000 and has been the executive Chef of Poppy’s since its inception.

For Sharone, cooking is much more than what happens in the kitchen: it involves sustainably-produced ingredients, a carefully-planned menu that provides well-balanced nutrition, and is visually beautiful.

Sharone loves cooking with fruits and vegetables, is heavily influenced by Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors and likes her food to be nourishing, comforting + healthy.

Sharone lives with her husband and daughter, Birdie in Brooklyn.
