Let me take the workshop participants on a trip to the eastern part of the Mediterranean. We will visit vegetable markets, say what spices go well with what, talk a bit about the tradition of Jewish cooking in this part of the world, and each day of the workshop promises to be an adventure with a completely different smell and taste.


Pretzels from Jerusalem – classic bread straight from Jerusalem, they smell of sesame, sometimes of zathar, but they taste delicious every time.

Msabbaha with beans – resembles hummus as it is often made with chickpeas, but in Tel-Aviv you can also find a version made with beans, which is absolutely delightful.

Tomatoes stuffed with couscous – a perfect, light summer dinner, and extremely photogenic, it is therefore for those who love good food and Instagram.

Amygdalota – these are almond cakes straight from Greece, which Sephardic Jews came to love and started making for Hanukkah.
