BEN’S BLOG: ‘Israel: Friday Night Dinner’
I like religion served up to me like curry: Mild. But one tradition that must be applauded, in the Jewish Faith, is their Friday Night Dinner. Everybody gets together, with family, often inviting over another family, and they eat until they burst. Leftovers (what are they?) are saved until the following day. And often, several options are offered for each course (I have always considered it the height of bad manners not to accept a full portion of each).
If you are ever invited for a Friday Night Dinner, wherever you are in the world, you should accept. The hospitality is friendly and the food; FIRST CLASS.
In other news:
Italy may own the pizza. India; the curry. And China; the Sweet & Sour. But Israel own the Chichen in Breadcrumbs, otherwise known as; the ‘Schnitzel’. Jewish women take the same level of pride in their cooking of a Schnitzel, as they do their own style, and failing to compliment what you are served, could risk you not being invited for dinner again. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED..!
