You can’t possibly have a birthday bash without some enticing victuals, right? The cultural powers that be in Ashdod have certainly ingested that perception in the most appealing and tastefully presented manner at the aptly named “Cooking Art in Ashdod” exhibition, currently up and running at the city’s Arie Klang House.

In case you missed the landmark date, Ashdod arose on the seafront sands six decades ago. The local municipality has been busy marking its threescore anniversary with various events, including the aforementioned aesthetically alluring display of food-inspired works, which – pardon the pun – feed off a range of local sensibilities.
