Bahrain is the Pearl of the Gulf and made up of 50 natural islands and 33 artificial islands. Bahrain is situated between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to which it is connected by the King Fahd Causeway. Bahrain is one of the world’s smallest countries, but it manages to pack a lot into a little area. Known for its exquisite pearls, historic forts, and more liberal attitude than some of its Middle Eastern neighbors.

Bahraini Jews constitute one of the world’s smallest Jewish communities, although its origins go back to late antiquity. The Jewish community declined during the twentieth century and in 1968 only 100 Jews remained in the capital city of Manama. Today, there are about 30 Jews living in Bahrain. The community still maintains ownership of a Shul and a Jewish cemetery.

Doron Sason

Chief Chef

Born and raised in Israel, after serving in the Air Force, Doron received his BA in Hotel Management from Johnson and Wales University. His management career followed him through Clearwater Beach, Florida all the way to the largest hotels in Las Vegas, Circus Enterprise, The Monte Carlo, and the Luxor where he held food and beverage positions. During his time in Las Vegas he completed his MBA in UNLV and a management training program.

Exposure to global experiences with a variety of cuisines helped Doron develop his own fusion language of cuisine, spanning Middle Eastern food to South American, Las Vegas –one of the largest centralized cuisines in the USA, to European and Asian. Doron published two digital books – available on Amazon – on his cooking specialties. These books lead him to develop his brand ‘2Slices Sandwich Boutique’ opening soon in a number of places around the world.

With Doron drawing his inspiration from around the world, his rule is that “There are no rules”. East meets west, traditional merges with modern techniques.

Recently, Doron became a partner in a vegan start up where he applies his vast experience to developing new ideas and business opportunities.
