The Cuisine and Food of Israel

Israel map, showing Tel Aviv, the Israeli capital, and other Israeli ...I am thinking about going to Israel at some point in the future, but I am not really sure when I will have enough money to do so. One thing that I want to learn about before I go is the Cuisine that is eaten in Israel. I am really interested in food in general, and I would like to be a chef one day. Well, that is one of my passions in any case. The reason that I care so much about Israeli food is that I am Jewish, and it seems like it would make me feel more in touch with my fellows Jews if I were to learn of the food in israel.

I know that the food represents kind of a fusion between the dishes that are traditional to the whole middle eastern and Mediterranean, along with foods that are of traditional Jewish origin. I know a good bit about traditional Jewish food, as I grew up in a Jewish household. My father makes the best French toast in the world from Challah bread; it is simply amazing. I’m sure that Israel’s cuisine incorporates many of these Jewish dishes that I am already familiar with.

However, I would like to get to know the rest of the food that they eat, and am very curious to learn more about such foods. I would also like to learn how to make some of these foods. I really like hummus, and I have tried it many times before in my life. I am thinking about attempting to make it sometime soon. I just need to find a good place to get some chick peas from. There are a lot of other dishes I want to learn how to make as well. In particular, I want to learn how to make falafel.
