Mediterranean CUISINE LIKE YOu've never tasted before


From Small


Tal Cohen started her catering business, Ba-Li Cravings in 2014. But her love and passion for baking started when she was as young as 5. Tal would find herself exploring in the kitchen and baking on her own as a young child, and later volunteered  to make all of the food and desserts for family gatherings. Tal always cooked and baked and found inspiration in the kitchen. She fell in love with the art of baking, cooking and crafting a different meal experience altogether. in 2015 Tal build her own commercial kitchen, painted blue, and ever since that is where she can be found.

Getting together and want some delicious food or desserts?

We can accommodate pick ups or deliveries for small groups with a variety of freshly made options for you.

Pick up: all pickups will be done with no contact. Food will be packed and set out close to pick up.
Kitchen: I have created a kitchen cleaning protocol with the fabulous Samantha Lushtak from Absolute EHS (Environmental Health and Safety consultant) and have that in place! I work alone, out of my commercial kitchen. All surfaces are disinfected, the kitchen is kept super clean, I work with gloves and replace them all the time. All food is packed in containers. Health and cleanliness are my top priority, therefor no one is allowed into my kitchen these days.
