Israel has been on my bucket list for the longest time. First and foremost, there is the food. Some of my favorite dishes come from that region. Some recipes have its origin from bordering countries like Palestine and Irak which makes a culinary tour through Israel even more interesting. And then you have the religious influences. Jewish food meets Muslim food meets Christian food. Not everything you eat in Israel is Israeli and I would have much preferred to travel to all surrounding countries. But that’s not always easy and so I enjoyed my time in Israel as a melting pot of food from the region and diverse religions.
Before I continue with my post, let me say one thing. Believe it or not but you will eat the best hummus and pita in your life when coming to Israel. I could have never imagined that hummus could taste even better than I know. It just blew my mind and if you can’t find any reasons yourself why to visit Israel. The hummus will be justification enough. Trust me on this one….
