After returning from a trip to Israel, it's difficult to find falafel in the United States that lives up to the deliciousness of the one you had on Ben Yehudah, or anywhere in Israel for that matter. But that's all about to change.
Taglit-Birthright is recognized worldwide for sending over 330,000 Jewish young-adults on a free ten day tour of Israel, and the organization now has an online cookbook, Israel To Go: Look & Cook Book, a compilation of recipes submitted by Birthright alumni, complemented with stunning photographs of Israeli life and food. With recipes for shakshuka, several varieties of latkes, salmon cakes, borsch, blintzes, hummus, pita, kugel -- and even ice cream and pumpkin bread -- you can bring the scents and flavors of Israel into your home. Even better, it's a paperless cookbook, which helps the environment and saves space in your bookcase.
