Israeli Food

Apparently the idea of Israeli food is a bit complicated.  It exists as a fusion of the cuisines of all the countries that Jews have lived in but then immigrated to Israel.  Some key regional influences include Mediterranean and Eastern European – foods like falafel, and borscht.  Then layer in Jewish dietary laws.  Here are some of my favorite sites that try to describe the complexity of Israeli food:
