About Executive Chef 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.  In February 2020 (a convenient time to open a restaurant), Andrew became an executive chef for the first time, bringing his understanding and love for Israeli cuisine to Laser Wolf. In May 2020, Laser Wolf was named a GQ Magazine "Best New Restaurant in America", and in May 2021, was named a Conde Nast Traveler “Best New Restaurant in the World” (see link to article below).

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 and daughter.


PLEASE NOTE: THIS DINNER IS ON SUNDAY, 10/10/21.
WE INVITE GUESTS TO ARRIVE AT 5:30. DINNER BEGINS AT 6:00 PM.
(this is a departure in day of the week and time from our usual Field to Fork Dinners).

Here's What Is Happening At The Farm

First and foremost, on behalf of myself, Kim, and our daughters, we cannot possibly convey how thankful we are for your words of kindness, support, time, and money. Our dear friend Sam Anderson set up the Go Fund Me page without our knowledge. If you know us, you know we are private people, and we would never have asked to do this. That being said, we are beyond grateful. It's been an extremely challenging time. Thanks to the outpouring of love from our community and the amazing SIW team, we are moving forward and rebuilding. 

Sincerely,

H.G. Haskell III

 We're Open While We're Rebuilding!

Tropical Storm Ida's Wrath

Our amazing friend, Sam Anderson, has created a Go Fund Me page. Thank you to the MANY friends, neighbors and customers who have reached out to express their sympathies. We will stand strong with the community's help and rebuild.
"Our dear friends HG and Kim Haskell had their amazing farmstead destroyed by the record-setting floods of Hurricane Ida on Thursday morning. Their home, just a few steps away, was flooded with 5 feet of water as well. Their entire farm stand was destroyed and they will need to start over completely. This farmstead, so beloved by the surrounding community for offering the finest fruits, veggies and pantry items as well as for their "Field to Fork" dinner series and for local restaurants is really important to the Haskell family and to many people they employ. These funds will be used by the Haskells to rebuild their farmstead."
 
 



 Our Satellite Stand at Richardson's Nursery in Hockessin is OPEN!

 We will continue to deliver fresh fruits and veggies there daily. Support us through your purchases there. Thank you!

We're Thrilled to Announce Yehuda Sichel from Huda will be Preparing a Field to Fork Dinner on October 13th

 

 You may be familiar with Chef Yehuda Sichel from our Taste in Music dinners. He's coming to us for an exclusive Field to Fork dinner in mid-October and we couldn't be more thrilled. After leaving Abe Fisher when COVID hit in March 2020, he turned his attention to sandwiches with a new restaurant in Rittenhouse Square. His swordfish, short rib, and brisket served on house-made milk buns are to die for!
