Since he was a child growing up in Israel, Amir Landsman has enjoyed the cuisine of his native land. Today, he cooks traditional Jewish dishes for his family and his friends to recapture the joy and happiness of his childhood. Jewish cuisine encompasses a wide range of Middle Eastern foods as well as the more iconic European dishes. For example, baba ghanoush is often considered to be a Mediterranean or Arabic dish; however, it is prepared and enjoyed in Israel as part of the traditional cuisine of the country. Tabouleh salads are similarly categorized as Middle Eastern but are among the mainstays of everyday Israeli cuisine.
