Taste Jerusalem’s multicultural flavors in dishes that showcase the region’s incomparable bounty, from hummus and chopped vegetable salads to fresh breads, shawarma, and baklava.

And, of course, there are simple but timeless pairings, like olives and Greek yogurt, with lots of za’atar and olive oil, and recipes for a variety of delicious breads and savoury vegetable, meat and fish dishes.
