If you found this website, you either know me or made a horrible google search and found this as a result. I will assume that you know me for the most part of this blog.
So, as you know, I'm spending this summer in Rehovot, Israel, doing a Research Program at the Weizmann Institute of Science (SCIENCE!). Today was my first day at the Institute. I met my adviser there, and walked a lot (really) through this immense campus. Here is a picture of the main gate.
But I digress. What is the point of this blog then? In one word: food. I think that food is very representative of a culture, and I think that the best way for me to delve into Israeli culture is to experience it from the kitchen. I'll be making some (simple) classic Israeli recipes as well as some of my personal favorite recipes. I'll try to post once or twice a week, at least, and I'll add pictures too.
Don't be fooled by the title of this blog! I am not a dietician. I just thought that the title should rhyme, and a friend recommended it. Titles that rhyme make it seem like the author knows what he's doing.
Also, I have really no experience cooking, and the place I'm staying does not have a fully equipped kitchen. So don't expect anything too fancy. This is not Top Chef (if anything, it's more like Survivor: Ariel's cooking). Remember: I'll be the one eating these dishes.
In any case, I'll probably post something tonight. Until then!
