I haven’t been to Israel since the week before the Gulf War broke out. At that time my son was going to school at Pardess Chana, and he stayed there throughout the war–though most of the other American students came home.
Did you get a chance to eat at Beni Dag’im, in Jerusalem? It’s been there since Biblical times (or so it seems) and is famous for amnun (St. Peter’s Fish, aka tilapia).
I was able to obtain from the food and beverage manager of the Tel Aviv Hilton, a man named Moisha Dayan (no relation to the general with the eye patch of the same name) the hotel’s recipe for cheesecake–in my opinion, the best cheesecake in all the world. I’ve adapted it for American ingredients and measurements, and would be happy to send you and Dana a copy, if you would like.]]>
