One of Elana Heideman's favorite things is cooking up a storm in her kitchen in Israel with her three kids. She loves exploring and creating recipes, and helping others bring the taste of Israel into their own kitchen. She feels that there is no closer connection to Israel than cooking up the incredible foods that embody its many cultural and gastronomic flavors. Through Cooking Israel, Elana continues to promote a meaningful personal connection to Israel for Jews throughout the world through something that everyone loves, food! Whether you're the chef or the food critic, bring the tastes and smells of Israeli cuisine into your home with our delectable Cooking Israel recipes, and Inspire Israel in your kitchen and in your community!
