In my early 20’s, I worked as a waitress at Jan’s Tea House in Jerusalem, which was a very unique establishments owned by 2 partners- a Dutch & a Palestinian men. Jan’s was located under The Jerusalem Theater, and it had a bit of “being in a cave” feeling to it. There were only 2 tables for seating; the rest were large pillows placed on the floor. The place had plenty of carpets and Middle Eastern décor all around. I enjoyed working there since there was a lot of interaction with the guests, and it didn’t quite feel like going to work,……

Tomato Salad

One of the things I enjoy about the summer is the flavor of tomatoes. Yes we get them year round, but as we all know, they taste best in the summer, especially the heirloom tomatoes. I had a bunch of heirlooms left from an Oz Catering gig, where I’ve made the good old Caprese salad to my client’s request, and I wanted to try and create something different. I basically use what I had in my fridge and created a bed of chopped Romaine lettuce because I love the crunch of it. On top I’ve arranged wedges of Heirloom tomatoes, wedges of……

2 weeks ago we had a house guest for a week- my cousin’s son Guy, who was on his way back to Israel from 9 months of backpacking all over South America. It was a lovely visit with him, and on his last day he wanted to make us dinner, telling me that he brushed up on his cooking skills while traveling. He made us a mouthwatering, delicious Shakshuka- an egg dish that is usually eaten for breakfast in Israel, but can be served as part of a light supper. I use to make Shakshuka when I catered for groups on……

Last post from my Israel series

By  Mock Webware |   | Posted in " Recipes, Roasted Beet Salad "

Category : Recipes

What I remember most from my years of growing up, is the time I hang out in the kitchen with my mom. First as a very young child my mom would give me few bowls, one filled with assorted dry beans, and the other ones empty, into which I could transfer the beans sorting them by sizes/color…. This kept me occupied while my mom cooked for the guests who stayed at my parent’s bed & breakfast. When I grew a little older, my mother started teaching me the art of cooking. She was a very good home cook, and all 4……
