Eleven international celebrity chefs who participated in a recent culinary tour to Israel were feted with several sumptuous especially prepared meals throughout their visit, but what really wowed them were the simple local specialties, such as the rich chocolaty rogalech pastries from the Marzipan bakery at the Jerusalem Mahane Yehuda open market, the traditional Jewish-Iraqi sabich sandwich with fried eggplant and hard-boiled egg, the late-night shawarma at Hakosem in Tel Aviv where customers waited in a line reaching out the door even at 2 a.m. to nab a warm pita stuffed with roasted meat, and always, the ever-present dazzling spices.
