magical hanukkah

We are approaching Hanukkah which is known to be the holiday of miracles. Have you ever thought that cooking and baking is a sort of a miracle?

Every time you take raw ingredients and turn them into a delicious food that make all your senses so happy and content, you create magic!

Do you feel this mysterious magic?

I walk through the Carmel market at least once a week with guests who share this passion for food and cooking . Everything is so tempting I can feel the vegetables calling out to me to pick them up which I often do. I always want to buy more than what I have on my list - everything looks so fresh and yummy and I immediately think about this magic that will turn the wonderful ingredients into amazing dishes.

Take raw zucchini and turn them into  wonderful Zucchini Levivot

Make my Zucchini pancakes,  another variation on Hanukkah latkes.

They taste wonderfully fresh, especially if you serve them with minted yogurt.

The magic is even more enhanced in my CookinIsrael tours where I introduce Israel through food to visitors from all over the world.

I  witness this miracle of meeting people who are complete strangers in the morning and by the end of the day  we all feel like family . This mysteriously happens around food and with cooking together. People discover new flavors and find them tasty. They take back home with them the recipes to introduce the new food to their families & friends.

I invite you to tour and cook with me when you next travel to Israel. Looking forward to hearing from  you: info@cookinisrael.com
