Jerusalem — The daughter of a chef and the communications director for a children’s cooking TV show, Natasha Miller is a self-described “huge foodie.”

Her boyfriend, Alex Blau, classifies himself as an “almost obnoxious foodie,” who takes constant photos of his meals.

So when Miller, who had been thinking about going on a Birthright Israel trip but was “sort of on the fence,” found out about a culinary-themed one, she “was sold” — and convinced Blau to come along.
