The Language of Food in Israel

When I learned I was going to Israel as one of seven international guest bloggers invited by Taste of Israel and Stand With Us, I had no idea what to expect with food.  Oh, yes, I knew some dishes like hummus (which I pronounced ‘hum-us’ and only to find out in Israel it’s ‘hooooo-mus’) and falafel, but I had NO idea whatsoever of the diversity of the foods that I would be experiencing!  From the peasant cooking with Nora in the Druze village in Haifa and street food in Jerusalem to the exclusive and chic restaurants of the Mater Chef Israel judges, Hiam Cohen and Jonathan Rushfeld in Tel Aviv and the extravagant food at the Dan Hotels, my palate was exploding for about 104 hours of my life!  Every couple of hours we were eating, and surprisingly, I longed for the pangs of hunger, which never came!

Come languish in the photos of the food~~most all of which I either tasted and/or ate~~you will be drooling after the about 137 seconds! Just click these photos and you’ll be on my magic carpet in Israel~~in the first, I’m tasting ‘Shakshouka’ (about 15 seconds) and in the second pix/video~~ohhhhhh, you’ll be soaring!  The language of food is universal~~you need no translations~~ Peace & Nameste  xoxo ally
