An Addict's Guide to Israeli Food Blogs

Written by Mirjam Weiss on Monday, 20 February 2012. Posted in Food News

English-speaking Israeli food bloggers are a unique lot.  We like to cook often, eat well and then tell the whole world about it.  We also like to party, and get together often to trade blogging points, food secrets and share a drink or two.  Here are just a few of my favorite Israeli English-language food blogs.  They're in alphabetical order so not a single one of them can complain about favoritism.

Ari Cooks – Ari is a New England transplant now living near Machane Yehuda in Jerusalem, and the shuk is featured often in her blog.  In her own words, she "cooks, bakes, dances, and roams the outdoor markets in Jerusalem."  My favorite recipe in the blog (so far) is Summer Noodles.
Baroness Tapuzina – the Baroness was one of the first blogs I ever started reading and I've been a fan from the start.  Her recipes use local ingredients and lean to the more gourmet end of the cooking spectrum.  She and her Baron do quite a bit of traveling and the foods of the countries she visits are featured beautifully in her posts.  Whenever we have a blogger get together the Baroness is usually happy to give me a ride.  Once I get in the back of her car and click on the seatbelt we have a good giggle.  I've gotten lost with the Baroness and her husband in Petach Tikva and Jaffa, and we once got stuck in the oddest traffic jam in Jerusalem at midnight, but the conversation never lags.  She cooks like she talks, classy yet comfortable.  Her Eccles Cakes for Tu Bishvat give an English classic an Israeli turn.
Café Liz – Liz lives in Tel Aviv and her blog features the vegetarian recipes from her kitchen.  She also discusses the local food culture, market tours, Tel Aviv highlights and restaurants.  Back in June I had a quick roam with her through the Machane Yehuda market and she turned me on to the Etrog Juice guy and also helped me avoid some passiflora halvah lurking in a stall.  Her latest post on purple carrots is both surreal and locally familiar at the same time.
Cooking Manager – Run by the capable Hannah, this blog offers recipes, tips, interviews and discussions many topics having to do with cooking and your kitchen.  Hannah has a quirky sense of humor – who else could discuss something so mundane as peeling vegetables and title the post Peeling, Nothing More Than Peeling (apologizes to those of you who don't get it, you obviously are not trapped in the 70s like some of us).
Cooking Outside the Box – A relatively new blog by Yosefa, a Florida transplant now living in Israel.  Yosefa focuses on healthy cooking, cooking with children and other kitchen tips.  We haven't yet met but she strikes me as one of those serene Earth Mothers, calmly cooking healthy food in the kitchen while well-behaved children quietly play with empty egg boxes on the floor.  Try her recipe for Creamy Creamy Buckwheat "Kasha" in the Pressure Cooker for a nostalgic trip to Comfort Food Land.
Food Bridge – A wonderful blog written by Sarah, who writes about food, travel, markets and photography.  Some wonderful recipes can be found here, including a few for edible plants one can find walking around the neighborhood.  Sarah helps you get to know the various open air markets around the country, doing the legwork for us and taking some gorgeous pictures along the way (I wish I could photograph a nettle the way this girl photographs a nettle).  Check out her post on Cardoon and Meatball Tangines for a real winter treat.
Hope It Will Rain – This blog is written by Yael, an Israeli living in the center of Israel.  In her own words:  "A mother and a wannabe career women that tries to have it all but sometimes drowns in the laundry..."  but this is a bit dated as recently Yael began working in a lab.  Many of us like to think of our kitchens as labs, but Yael works in a real lab, a geek lab!  How cool is that?  Yael's recipes are gluten-free, which is helpful for a lot of us, but I do have to admit I read her blog just as much for the gorgeous photographs as I do for her recipes.  One of her more recent recipes, for Inchusa, is one of my favorites.
Irene Sharon Hodes – one of my newest favorites, Irene has one of my dream jobs as a wine steward for the Golan Wineries.  Needless to say, her blog is heavy on wine, but she also writes about her trips abroad, her life in Tel Aviv and all the yummy food she comes across in her travels.  Check out her blog to get the latest info on what to drink, what to eat while you drink it, and where to drink it.
Israeli Kitchen – this is the first Israeli food blog I ever read and I have been a fan since Day One.  Mimi has the most amazing recipes, mini-travelogues and eye-catching photos.  You wish you were right there with her, cooking in her kitchen, roaming the markets, or sitting down to eat the food she photographs so beautifully.  In Mimi's kitchen you will consider the humble turnip, or head into nirvana, or the world of condensed milk and dulce de leche.  
Miriyummy – did you really think I was going to leave myself out of this list?  I usually tell stories about my life and my family, and always tie in a recipe.  As my husband likes to say, it's a slice of life.  He also takes credit for coming up with my name, and if I ever start making money off of my blog, he wants his percentage of the profits.  Do you think I could pay him in cookies?
The Gush Gourmet – a lot of good cooking seems to come out of the Gush Etzion region of Israel and the Gush Gourmet is one of the foodie bloggers based in the area.  The recipes found on the site are complete riddles, healthy yet yummy and delicious.  I drooled over the Sesame Crusted Seared Tuna with Wasabi- Soy Dipping Sauce for a whole two days before I couldn't help myself any longer and made a batch just for me.  Okay, I shared with my husband, but that's only because he caught me making them, and I felt guilty about keeping it all for myself.  
The Kosher Blogger – this blog is the new kid on the block.  Margo Sugarman just started blogging in October 2011, but she posts at least once or twice a week, and every single recipe is something you would want to try and serve in your home.  I first found out about this blog because I happen to be good friends with her sister-in-law, and after one read I was hooked and subscribed.  One of her yummiest entries, Brynn’s East Meets East Noodle Salad, just happens to be by my homie, Margo's SIL. Thankfully, you all don't need to know Brynn to find out about this blog.  Just hurry on over and drool over the photos.
Vegan Start – back in the 90s I was a vegan for about 5 years (for health reasons).  The Internet was pretty much in its infancy and most information could be gleaned from discussions lists, not Google or Wikipedia, which didn't exist back then.  Looking for help with vegan cuisine I joined a group of vegans whole sole purpose was not to help each other cook vegan food, but to help each other come up with unique and nasty insults for non-vegans.  I quickly left that toxic party and just tried to swing it on my own.  Pity Vegan Start wasn't around, because this blog really gives fantastic recipes for vegan dishes, and one of the best things about it is that it's not preachy, just helpful.  Just as an example, I'm not scared of vegan cooking, but making my own seitan always scared me.  But one read through the post on Easy Seitan and while I'm not exactly a champion, I can turn out a decent lump of the stuff.

    Thanks so much for giving me the impetus to write this, and for your patience while I did (it took me long enough, didn't it?).
