Delicious Israel - A banquet celebration of authentic dishes 

Israeli cuisine was created combining local dishes by people native to Israel and dishes brought to Israel by Jews from the Diaspora. Since before the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and particularly since the late 1970s, an Israeli Jewish fusion cuisine has developed.

Israeli cuisine has adopted, and continues to adapt, elements of various styles of Jewish cuisine, particularly the "Mizrahi", Sephardic and Ashkenazi styles of cooking. It incorporates many foods traditionally eaten in Levantine, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, and foods such as falafel, hummus, msabaha, shakshouka, couscous, and za'atar are now widely popular in Israel.

With its kaleidoscopic colours, aromatic scents and vibrant produce it’s no wonder that Israeli cuisine is in the spotlight. During this class you will be taken through the cornerstones of Israeli cooking as you will demonstrate and enjoy a mouth

watering feast.
