The Saidel Artisan Baking Institute is located in the Samarian country village of Karnei Shomron. The Tudor styled building nestles in the shade of weeping willows, with the tranquil trickle of a babbling brook to delight the senses.

The family business is run by husband and wife team, Les and Sheryl Saidel who complement each other's skills perfectly.

Les is a student of world reknowned pastry chef Michel Suas (San Francisco Baking Institute), and is a master artisan baker in his own right with 35 years of baking experience. Sheryl manages the pastry, confectionery and logistics side of the operation.

The Saidels are passionate artisan bakers fueled by the mission of re-acquainting people with good, old-fashioned, healthy bread and mouth watering confectionery. The S.A.B.I is a haven for anyone wanting to experience the ancient art of artisan baking and a center for training, consulting and baking.

The S.A.B.I provides professional, hands-on training and consulting services, workshops and demonstrations for groups, families or individuals.

The Saidels are pioneering the artisan baking trend in Israel and empowering more and more people to return to their roots and restore baking to where it rightfully belongs - in the home.
