The Best Israeli Cuisine

8 May

Israeli cuisine was created by Jewish immigrants from all over the world. It is comprised of many different dishes from local communities, and dates back thousands of years. Israeli cuisine has continued to change over the course of many years, and now includes foods that were traditionally thought of as Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Arabic.

The base of Israeli cuisine is still centered around wheat, barley, olives, figs, pomegranates, dates, and grapes. These foods, along with breads, meats, cheeses, beans and vegetables, combine to make up the Israeli cuisine we know today. These foods are prepared in a variety of ways, based on the custom and religion of each family. Because of this, Israeli cuisine is one of the most diverse cuisines known today.

Jewish dietary laws require that kosher food rules be followed. While not all people that enjoy Israeli cuisine adhere to these rules, many do. Many of the allowed kosher foods, as well as the rules for consuming them can be found in the bible, in the book of Leviticus.

In order to prepare true Israeli meals at home, you will need to find a market that provides everything you need. This will prevent you from wasting time and money searching all over town for the ingredients you need. A diverse cuisine encompasses many food choices, and finding a one stop market in your area will provide you with easy access to these choices.

Finding authentic Israeli cuisine is not always easy. Those seeking out Israeli cuisine in the Washington, DC area should visit Shaul’s Kosher Market. This market carries a large variety of items, including many that are hard to find elsewhere. Shaul’s is located at 1319 Lamberton Dr. Wheaton, MD 20902. You can contact them by phone: (301) 593-1800, or by fax: (301) 754-2461.
