I decided to combine a photo gallery of Food and Culture because in Israel, the food is such a significant part of the culture.

Israel Food: The Melting Pot and Salad Bowl of the Mediterranean

You will find on these pages pictures of Israeli delicacies that you can nearly taste. Also great shots of people and places that represent the true fabric of Israeli culture.

Our Favorite Pictures of Israeli Food and Culture

Israel food, featuring an ethnic melting pot of culinary delights from all over the world, is as diverse as its people. Because Israel is such a young country, modern Israeli food recipes are derived from generations of immigrants from six continents.

The intense Mediterranean sun allows Israel to nurture the finest olive groves, fresh fruits and vegetables, and the most amazing dairy products. Producing regional staples such as world class wineries, virgin olive oil, and local breads baked daily, the Mediterranean is the source of what many consider to be the world’s healthiest diet, and in my opinion the best things to eat.

I have many  unique photos of authentic Israeli delicacies and more and have put together a collection of my favorites for you.


We would also invite you to  share some of your favorites with us.

We hope you have enjoyed our photo gallery. As I said, Lisa and I are always discovering new places and things to photograph and we invite you as our guest to contribute to this page and our main Israel photo gallery as well.

Of course, that is not a substitute for visiting Israel in the near future. With limitless things to do and see, you will find yourself wanting more and more.
