Just a quick interlude from Israel to let you all know my smoked mackerel, dill and chive pate is now LIVE on my blog. You can get to it by clicking on the link above ⬆️. It’s a great recipe for feeding a crowd or as a dip or starter. It’s something I have enjoyed since I was a child. Snapshots from Israel will resume on my next feed. .

Each day we sample a different baklava so that slowly we work through all the different varieties on offer. Today I opted for these little nests filled with pistachio and honey. Sticky and sweet but one is just perfect. I also had a slice of halva on the side because it would be rude not to 😉right?  An exotic sugar rush. .

Couldn’t resist a few purchases from the beautiful bijou perfumery @zielinskirozen_perfumes They make all their goodies on site and they smell divine. Think along the lines of Le Labo and Aesop. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the hood or visiting Tel Aviv. Swipe ➡️ to see more photos. .

It’s no secret that THE best place for hummus in TLV is “Abu Hassan”, which happens to be nestled not too far from where we are staying in Jaffa (I discovered there are 2 sites in fact one on Shivtei Israel St 14 and the other Ha-Dolfin St 1). They serve only 3 dishes - hummus, ful - mashed fava beans and masabaha - tahini with chickpeas. Order them all and they will arrive with fresh pillowy flat bread, raw onion to scoop up the dips and a delicately spiced 🍋 dip. Oh and not forgetting the delicious falafels. All sublime. .

The Hamsa - known in Islamic societies as the Hand of Fatima and in Jewish lore the Hand of Miriam. It serves as an ancient talismanic way of averting the evil eye or more generally of providing a “protecting 🤚🏻” or “🤚🏻of God”. Some sources link the significance of the five fingers to the five books of the Torah, or the five pillars of Islam. In more recent years some activist for Middle Eastern peace have chosen to wear the hamsa as a symbol of the similarities of origins and tradition between the Islamic and Jewish faiths. .

Blue skies and parasols on the beach in Tel Aviv. I spend my time hiding from the sun under them, swimming in the sea to cool down - although it’s the hottest sea EVER so not very refreshing - showering, drying off under the umbrella and reading my book and then repeat. Not a bad way to spend a few hours. .

The #oldmanandthesea restaurant in Jaffa’s old port is a slick, and yet down to earth operation that gives your lunch or dinner (in our case) a touch of theatrical magic. No sooner than you are seated with your menu,  all these meze are ceremoniously delivered to your table by waiters you whizz around serving all the tables, inside and out, like whirling deverishes. It takes the trouble of deciding what to eat away as you are given well over 20 salads, hummus, baba ghanoush etc ... and then you simply decide what fish/shell fish or meat to have as a main. We simply opted for one calamari to share  which was more than enough. Deliciously sweet and sour, freshly squeezed 🍋 juice is delivered to each table in pitchers. To finish cardamom coffee arrives with little sweet treacle balls - similar tasting to Indian jalebi. It’s a fun experience with good honest food in a great location. Definitely worth a visit if you are visiting Tel Aviv.

Anyone else melting at the moment? Goodness me it is hot 🔥hot🔥hot. I have a new blog post in the link in my bio ⬆️. A good old Indian egg curry. I adore eggs 🥚 so this is a fun way to give them center stage. Perfect with plain rice on both hot summer days or cold, frosty winter ones. Enjoy. ☀️☀️☀️

Visiting pals in the countryside so took my spice boxes 🎨 to create a vegetarian curry feast for them all. Forgot to do a more stylish shot so you’ll have to make do with this action colurful shot. Made marrow dal, Sri Lankan beetroot curry, cabbage and potato curry with fennel seeds and sultanas, egg curry and brown rice. All on my blog. Simple but effective and a lovely colour palate don’t you think? All the fresh ingredients from my friend’s vegetable garden. Organic and so fresh. Happy days.
