ANDREW HENSHAW

Andrew Henshaw is the Executive Chef of Laser Wolf, an Israeli grill in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Andrew was previously the Chef de Cuisine at Zahav, CookNSolo’s pioneering Israeli restaurant, where he worked for five years mastering the flavors and technique of Israeli cuisine.

Andrew grew-up in the Lehigh Valley just north of Philadelphia and has worked in hospitality since the age of 15. After earning a degree in hospitality management from Penn State University, and completing a corporate kitchen manager role with Sodexo, Andrew moved to Philadelphia and staged at Zahav. It was only a few hours before Andrew knew that this was the restaurant where he needed to work, and so within no time, he was cooking on-the-line. In addition to spearheading the culinary tour-de-force that is Zahav, Andrew led the recipe testing for CookNSolo's best-selling Israeli Soul cookbook, and in recent years has created the Zahav dinner experience with Michael Solomonov at events from coast-to-coast. This February Andrew becomes an executive chef for the first time, bringing his understanding and love for Israeli cuisine to Laser Wolf.

When he’s not flaming the charcoal fires, Andrew most enjoys the summertime pleasure of eating cheeseburgers and soft serve at the Dairy Bar on the Jersey Shore with his wife, Hadar.
