What's for Dinner at "Alma Lounge"? Tel Aviv's Hot New Restaurant!

CULINARY IN ISRAEL
From Conde Nast Traveler ... Truth in Travel 
Chef Yonatan Roshfeld is a star of the New Israeli culinary scene. His spots Herbert Samuel and Yavne Montefiore are consistently among the top restaurants in Tel Aviv, and he’s got a stubborn commitment to local ingredients and using them with flair. He’s also a man of some mystique who would rather be preparing some deftly deconstructed seafood lasagna or dreamy Wonder Cake (an über-chocolaty take on babka) than dishing to the press, thank you very much. A Moroccan-French mix and to the kibbutz born, he’s pretty much a perfect fit for the jaunty new Alma Lounge restaurant at the eponymous boutique hotel situated in a renovated 1925 Tel Aviv townhouse. Its facade is mint green and cool—Roshfeld’s new menu, on the other hand, is more about heat.

Try a New Vegetable: Jerusalem Artichokes

While looking for a topic for today’s blog, I was glancing through some food ideas and “Try a     New Vegetable: Jerusalem Artichokes” jumped out at me. Naturally since Israel grows some of the most succulent and delicious produce in the world, I thought that a new delight from Israel was being presented.

It turned out that Jerusalem Artichokes are not from Israel at all but named after the most special city on the planet. It really makes one wonder. Regardless, having been introduced with the veg., I thought I would pass it along with some words by Kelly Rossiter of TLC a Discovery Company.
