Chef Einat Admony knows a thing or two about "leaning in." As creator of the popular New York eateries, Taim Falafel and Balaboosta, she has helped bring inspired Middle Eastern fare to New York City. The Israeli-native (her mother is originally from Iran; her father from Yemen), has a brand new cookbook out too. Also called Balaboosta, it shares many of her best dishes pulled from the restaurants and her Mediterranean roots. (See our peek inside it here.)
If that wasn't enough, she is hard at work opening her third restaurant, Bar Bolonat, which will fuse Middle Eastern food with cuisines from around the globe. Despite her packed schedule, Admony, who has two children along with her husband, Stefan Nafziger, is an enthusiastic home cook.
