This here is part 1 of the amazing 2-part cooking show we produced with beloved Israeli Master Chef Tom Franz!!!!! (I know that’s lots of exclamation points but I am super-duper excited!!!! Can you tell?!??!?!) In the heart of Biblical Jerusalem, in the gorgeous City of David courtyard, under the shade of olive trees, in front of a live audience, we prepared (as in Tom cooked and I helped) 3 recipes featuring the 7 Super Foods of the Bible aka the Sheva Minim: wheat, barley, figs, dates, pomegranates, grapes (wine), and olives (oil).

I had lots of trouble writing this intro because my experience at the City of David, Biblical Jerusalem was so extraordinary, so moving, so breathtaking, so meaningful and so emotional. So… instead of continuing to try and put it into words I figured I would just show you. Watch this.

Don’t miss the latest in my Joy of Israel series. Let’s learn to cook Kurdish cuisines, visit the caves and maybe a bit of Kabbalah.

You know how it goes.  In life we often travel to far off places, in search of happiness, success, spirituality, opportunity, adventure.  For the last episode of Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller we trekked almost 4 hours to the northern tip of the country, a stones throw from Syria, to sled and see Israeli Cowboys.  It was an incredible family trip but like all trips (especially those with young kids), it was good to go and even better to come home.

WATCH NOW: With gratitude to Hashem and to my partners 12 Tribe Films and Nefesh B’Nefesh I present to you the premiere episode of Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller, the highly anticipated food and travel series and sequel to the Joy of Aliyah documentary. Because you asked for it and because we heard you, this first episode will show you a slice of every day life, a part of Israel that doesn’t get much press and a dish that’s a far cry from falafel and hummus… Poyke! (Although hubby calls it Hokee Pokee!) “What is Poyke?” you ask, just watch and learn. And by the way, for the record my kids were NOT unbuckled and standing while I was driving, I was parked at the time, that I would NEVER allow :-) .
