About Chef Elizabeth Mehditach

A Cali-Girl With A New York Attitude

Hi I'm Chef Elizabeth, and I am the Founder and Executive Chef of Lēza. I am thrilled to share traditional recipes gleaned from my grandmother and mother with you. For generations, cooking and entertaining, is the true love language of my family. 

 

Little did they know I'd turn our traditional Mediterranean and Middle Eastern recipes on their head. What else would you expect when you grow up in Hollywood, CA? With it's diverse & vibrant culture, & it's delicious ethnic food scene, LA inspires my menus by adding that perfect je n'est sais quois to every dish, every time.

To your health!

"Incredible food, incredible service!!! Wish I could give more stars!! Every single plate I tasted was definitely divine! First class."

We LOVE your (Chef Elizabeth's) food. Everything was delicious. Top to bottom. Especially blown away by your cake. It is one of the best I've had and I am a complete foodie.

I am an estate manager for a multi-million dollar property in Malibu. It is my job to scout chefs and manage all the "ins and outs" of dinner parties. I have hired Cafe Lēza/Chef Elizabeth for five of our events now and I will say that every event has been a flawless experience with her. Not only is her food unique, fresh and perfectly prepared, her attention to detail is truly extraordinary.

I am such a Cafe Lēza fan! I have been to multiple events where she did the catering and she is a true talent. Her sweet treats are everything and more but I am probably craziest about her Angeleno/Mediterranean fusion dishes...so yummy!
