Cheese & Za'atar Pastries
Cheese is one of our favorite foods! Israeli cheese is unique, light and very fresh. Although we appreciate cheeses from all over the world – whenever we travel, or spend long periods of time overseas, we miss our Cottage and 9% white cheese.
Combine it with Za’atar –that grows all over Israel, serve with olives and you are transported into the Mediterranean in whisk of a bite.
