FOOD/ Levantine cuisine –

Hummus served with mushrooms and oignons. Not only it tastes good, but it looks good too!

Traditional mezze (assortment of salads) served with pita bread for an enjoyable “pick and taste” moment. I love Baba ghanoush (mashed eggplant mixed with virgin olive oil and various seasonings).

I enjoyed pastries in Israel a lot. Sweet or salty, with seeds, cheese, eggs or veggies, they were all yummy.

Breakfast with delicious Matbucha (tomatoes and roasted bell peppers seasoned with garlic and chili pepper) and eggs.

Delightful and sweet Halva from Yehuda market in Jerusalem.

Hot beverage called Sahlab. Originally prepared with salep powder and water, it is now often made with hot milk. It is pretty thick and tastes like flower.
