    Your list of pesach recipes looks wonderful. However, it was frustrating for me to have your latest book pre-ordered on Amazon and not have access to some of your recommendations.

      Hi Linda,
      Yes we understand your frustration…sadly it’s out of our hands when the publisher decides to release the book in the U.K (and U.S.A for that matter). The good news is there are lots of great recipes from the first two books as well as a few on the website – hope that helps a little.

    We are having an 18 year old lady from Israel stay with us in July. Could you please advise me on what are the main types of foods which an Israeli family would have in a day? She is visiting us as a guest of Lions clubs. We have never met her. We are looking forward to her visiting us Denise

    Hi Denise,
    How thoughtful of you to plan ahead and care enough to cook what she loves. Many Israelis enjoy a healthy Mediterranean diet (as many of us do here in Australia) with lots of salads and vegetables, grilled fish and meat. Israel has a wonderful array of cheeses, breads, grains and fruit as well as an amazing and diverse food culture where all cuisines are enjoyed.

    Many Jewish people, including some who live in Israel, follow a kosher diet. We assume she will let you know if she does. In that case she may not eat pig products or shellfish, nor eat dairy foods with a meat meal.

    There are two recipes from our books which may make her feel at home – search Middle Eastern Crunch Salad and Israeli Couscous Salad in the salads section:

    We also have many more recipes in all of our three books. If you have the books, let me know and I can point you in the right direction.
