Friday photo: Israeli cuisine

I am just back from a week in Israel, having travelled through Haifa, Akko and Tiberias in the north, Jerusalem a its very heart and Tel Aviv on the West Coast and briefly floated on the Dead Sea. It is easily on the most fascinating countries I have ever encountered – the proverbial melting pot of cultures and religions…

And as a vegetarian, the food was to swoon over – hummus, falalfel, tahina, tabouleh, bourkea, shahshuka, baklava and halva… Of course, most of it has origins elsewhere in the region and has now been enfolded into Israeli cuisine, which is what makes the food so interesting and inclusive.

In fact, Israeli cuisine seems to be the flavour of the season, as these two stories in Mic and BBC seem to indicate – read them at your leisure…

  1. Thank you for sharing this drool worthy photo of Israeli cuisine. The food looks appealing and I’m sure it tastes delicious as well. I would love to try the baklava; it looks delectable. Looking forward to your next post.

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Eshika! Israeli cuisine was truly delectable – especially for me as a vegetarian traveller. Baklava is originally from Turkey, but like many other things, has travelled smoothly across the region.
