I recommend taking an opportunity this Shavuot to celebrate the flowering of gourmet Israel with these four fundamental regional and historical products.

There are four products that symbolize the culinary revolution in Israel more than any others: bread, wine, cheese and olive oil.

The festival of Shavuot gives us the opportunity to enjoy all four together. It is, among other things, a harvest festival celebrating the first fruits and the grain harvest. As it is a tradition to eat dairy products, what could be more appropriate than to enjoy a selection of Israeli cheeses, a hunk of bread – with olive oil drizzled on it, of course – and washed down with some Israeli wines?
