Abbie Rosner – Galilee Cuisine
Here in the Galilee in Northern Israel, throughout thousands of years of history, the changing seasons have dictated what people eat. Much can be learned about the ancient foodways from historians and biblical scholars. But if you look past the distractions of supermarket bounty and global cuisine, many of these age-old culinary traditions are still being practiced today. My passion it to search out those people who are intimately connected to the fruits of this land, to learn from them, and document their work.
I write about the Galilee’s multicultural culinary scene, and my articles have appeared in Gastronomica, Wine Spectator, and other publications. I also created “Culinary Tours of the Galilee” www.galileecuisine.co.il to enable visitors to Israel to meet and break bread with the chefs and artisans who are shaping the new “Galilee Cuisine”.
