Israel is a melting-pot where you can be inspired with so many different cultures, foods and recipes. Jewish people came from all over the world and brought with them their Jewish recipes influenced by the foods, herbs and spices of their environment from around the middle-east through the Mediterranean countries to East of Europe. People came over from Iraq, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Russia, Poland, Germany and more.
All Jewish recipes are kosher which means that all the ingredients are kosher and the dishes will always be separate for meat and dairy.
