All India, 29th June 2016:The Indian Embassy in Israel along with Dan Hotels, recently hosted Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and his family in Israel to promote Indian cuisines in the country. The weeklong food festival, aptly named Indian Culinary Week, showcased a wide range of gastronomic delights from India in an initiative to promote the Indian culinary art overseas. The King David Hotel in Jerusalem played host to this three-day program where Chef David Bitton and Chef Kapoor collaborated to prepare various Indian dishes, receiving an overwhelming response from all who attended.

Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, who received the ‘Best Chef of India’ award, is known for his love of creating Indian food experiences by promoting home cooking with authentic practices through his TV shows for his audiences all over the world. While in Israel, Chef Kapoor also dined with Chef Uri Buri, of Uri Buri restaurant in Akko, Chef Moshe Basson of The Eucalyptus restaurant in Jerusalem, and he also hosted a demo-lecture at the Dan Gourmet Cooking School with close to 300 attendees.

The Chef Kapoor and his family spent some enjoyable time exploring Israel and her rich history and culture. On the itinerary was the Old City of Jerusalem and the famous Mahane Yehuda Market, UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Akko (Acre) – the historical port city, and the Baha’i Gardens of Haifa. Chef Kapoor and the family also enjoyed a refreshing and revitalizing break at the Dead Sea.

There are many different traditions and cultures that have influenced the Israeli cuisine we know today. In fact, being a vegetarian or a vegan is actually quite trendy in Israel. The Indian Culinary Week not only promoted Indian culinary art in Israel but also presented a new dimension to the cultural similarities between the two countries.
