I love ט׳ו בשבט (Tu B'Shvat). It is the best holiday - ראש השנ הלאילנות (The New Year for Trees). 

Many, many moons ago when I was a child in Hebrew School in the dead of winter, every  ט׳ו בשבט all the students received a gift of a small brown paper bag filled with nuts and dried fruit from Israel. It was something very special and it was very exciting. פרי תמרים, תאנים, משמשים, (dates and figs and apricots). שקדים בקליפה (almonds in the shell.) And something unknown in our parts - חרוב (boxer fruit). 

I was very interested in eating it all but a little confused about whether I would like the taste...


 If you are at all a Foodie (a term I'm not fond of - but what the heck) then you are probably aware that Israel has any amazing restaurant scene. With the freshest ingredients at hand Israeli Chefs have become some of the most adventuresome and inventive players on the scene. But like everywhere else in the world, better - meaning higher quality ingredients, freshness, presentation, unusual combinations and very little on the plate - means higher prices. Tel Aviv is especially exciting because many restaurants are not kosher and seafood is a main staple. 


My good friend Yael and I like to treat ourselves on...
