Israeli food has become the it cuisine, with Israeli restaurants opening throughout the country. But what makes Israeli food so special? Israel is a culinary crossroads, a mishmash of foods best represented in its shuks, or markets, where foods from Yemen, Morocco, Bulgaria, Libya, Turkey, Russia, the Levant, and dozens more sit side by side to create a food culture unlike anywhere else in the world. Here, two leading female Israeli food voices present 140 home-cook-friendly recipes inspired by this singular cuisine.
