Gourmet restaurants and cafes, internationally celebrated chefs, award-winning wines and chocolates, beers and teas – in the last 20 years Israel has undergone a food revolution.
Today the country has become a food critic’s delight. With a population that hails from dozens of countries around the globe, Israel is creating a unique new Israeli cuisine that combines fresh, top-quality Mediterranean ingredients with a whole lot of Israeli chutzpah.
