Every country I visit I like to go to a local bakery and see what types of products they have. The abundance of different and delicious sweet and savoury products always amazes and intrigues me. I have found that generally in hot countries they have mainly pastry products, such as, puff, filo, shortcrust, fried batter and yeast cakes with syrup. This of course makes sense as butter-creams and frostings wouldn’t stand the heat. Here are some of the delectable products I found in a bakery in Eilat, south Israel.
I love markets. There’s something special about them, particularly in hot countries. The fruit and vegetables are always seasonal and thus the more appealing. I am currently holidaying in Israel and yesterday went to an everyday market in a southern city called Beer Sheva.
The colours are amazing and very appetising! 🙂
These are fresh almonds, I had never seen them before.
