Sababa Means "It's All Good"

Owned & operated by Shoham Yaniv & RAchelle Pegg

Sababa Catering brings a global, home-cooked dining experience to a local level. Using only locally-sourced, humane, and sustainable ingredients, every dish is hand-made from scratch. Our staff is dedicated to making food with integrity that is well-balanced, flavorful, and superior in quality and flavor.


Born and raised in Israel, Shoham has always had a passion for food. Whether as a young boy eating fresh pita with za’atar, or travelling the world and enjoying culinary delights as an adult, his love for food is never-ending.

Growing up on a kibbutz near the Mediterranean, where living off the land and sea as a peaceful, supportive community are the foundations of daily life, Shoham's passion for food has inspired his company to live the spirit of “sababa, it’s all good.”

Shoham received his Culinary Degree from Santa Barbara City College where he has been able to apply traditional kibbutz farm to table practices to clients in Santa Barbara. Together with his partner Rachelle, Sababa Catering is ready to make your next event worth celebrating.
