For a recent celebration of the friendship between Israel and Turkey, hosted jointly by the Los Angeles consulates of both countries, Yaara Segal of the Israeli Consulate asked us to recommend what dishes to serve.

Coming up with a list of dishes that would appeal to both Israelis and Turks was easy, since the culinary cultures of the two Mediterranean countries have a lot in common. Some dishes that are favorites in Israel, such as burekas (savory filled flaky pastries) and malabi (creamy pudding), are in fact variations of classic Turkish dishes. People in both countries share a love for eggplant, peppers, bulgur wheat, flatbreads, baklava and much more.
