What's new on the Israeli menu? There must be a satiating answer to this question.
As opposed to French, Italian or Chinese cuisine, Israeli cooking cannot be strictly defined by specific condiments, flavors, or dishes. While Israel's geographic location has provided the country's victuals and a decided Middle Eastern orientation, socially Israel is a state whose population represents 80 countries from both East and West, meeting in the same melting pot. And while it's a nation not yet 50 years old, it boasts a two-thousand-year-old culinary credo that began when the Jews were dispersed to the four corners of the earth.
