These last few months in Israel have provided me many opportunities to make some breakthroughs in the kitchen. It’s ironic since, it’s the most meager kitchen I’ve ever had to use. Double hot plate. Oven the size of a large microwave. An actual microwave. One large knife, that’s dull enough to be dangerous. And a collection of pots an pans just functional enough to work. But against these odds the roommates and I have made some delicious meals. I’ve certainly been influenced by Israeli cuisine but also look to satisfy cravings for food I would find easily back home in the States..
It was the hope of Dafna, Nika and I to take a cooking class of some type during our stay in Israel. We came across some great coupons to enroll in a 3 hour class called French Cooking with a Twist at the Jerusalem Culinary Institute. It was an amazing experience and we each learned a lot. I hope the pictures do just to how incredible the food tasted!
