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.


Salad with freekeh – green wheat took Israeli cuisine by storm several years ago. The grain is combined with various other ingredients and with fresh herbs and the resulting salad makes perfect dinner when it’s hot outside.

Bayma – okra stewed in tomatoes is a perfect idea for everyone who doesn’t like meat. Spicy paprika, coriander seeds and leaves make this simple dish delightful.

Kibbeh – lamb and bulgur cutlets from Lebanon may be served in lemon soup or as a snack. Ground allspice makes it absolutely unique.

Challah with dates – round plaited challah with dates may appear on the table during the Jewish New Year, but baked without such an occasion tastes just as good.
