Bringing Israeli baking to Bangalore Print E-mail

Israeli baker and chef Keren Agam was the special guest presenter at an interactive baking workshop at the Den Bengaluru Hotel in Bangalore, India, on 31 January.

The workshop, titled “India & Israel Traditionally Innovative” was organised by Israel’s Consulate in Bangalore, with the aim of sharing the taste of traditional Israeli breads and pastries with local residents. Some of the city’s socialites and lovers of baking were invited to the event, at which Keren and chef Manu Kumar inspired them to ignite their baking skills. Attendees also enjoyed the scrumptious nosh while sipping some fine wines.

The event marked the celebration of 27 years of the official diplomatic ties between India and Israel.

International food delights on offer in Tel Aviv Print E-mail

A World Food Market highlighting winter foods took place at Drama, a restaurant in Tel Aviv, on 15-16 February. It showcased exotic delicacies from many countries and regions all around the world, including from Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, India and Tibet.

The event was born from a passion for food, and the desire to create a platform that showcases the local cuisine enjoyed in homes and on the streets of places near and far.

The organisers said it was important for the dishes to be as authentic as possible, prepared by people who grew up eating them. So most of the food featured was sourced from expat residents in Israel.
