Thank you to everyone who helped make our first E-Culinary Diplomacy event a success! Gal Sandler shared her passion for healthy food and love for her Israeli culture. With her step by step instructions, she led us in making an Israeli eggplant dish, traditional boureka, a sweet potato and red lentil mash, and vegan shawarma using tofu and mushrooms. Sandler talked about the diverse ways Israelis to prepare for Shabbat, and that Shabbat for her means being with her family. She encourages everyone to be proud of their cooking. “Hopefully you get inspired and really realize how healthy food cuisine could be really easy and tasty” she says.
