Israel is one of the most diverse countries on Earth… so what better way to celebrate Israel’s diversity and to educate the world on modern Israeli culture than to share our cuisine!
Our website offers a vast resource of more than 1,000 original recipes and photos displaying the country’s rich and diverse cuisine while exploring Israel’s culture and innovative spirit. Our pet peeve is recipe websites that give you paragraphs of filler before they get to the recipe itself. At IsraeliRecipe, our intent is to provide the necessary background information about a certain dish (if necessary), give a quip or two, some tips on how to best prepare a certain recipe and the recipe itself. That’s it! Feel free to comment and join the discussion, but we want to cook… so let’s get to it!
