A taste of Jerusalem

Its been many years since I left Jerusalem to discover the great wide world and all the delicacies it has to offer.
I left the harsh reality, the cold winters, the unbearable gravity of life, politics and religion. They all proved a little too much and I never looked back.
In fact, the further away life took me, the more I was deterred by the city and all it had to offer. Until now.
A recent project has brought me back to the city and I have come full circle, like a perfectly shaped Pita bread.
Food showed me the way back to the city but this time from a slightly different point of view, revealing, along the way, a delicious and distinctly unique foodscape, making Jerusalem easier to digest and easier to love.
East Jerusalem and West, Israeli and Palestinian, Jews, Muslims, Christians and Armenians, Ashkanazi and Sephardic, Secular and Religious, Kosher and Halal, old and new.
Past, present and future.


  1. I have always wanted to visit Jerusalem (and Tel Aviv). I think this Spring I will finally do it.

  2. Sounds to me like a good plan,
    just make sure you come with an appetite!
