desert salad

April 20, 2014 • Nancy Wolfson-Moche

The desert is all about extremes. When I arrived in the Negev I began to understand the genesis of the Israeli salad. Its colorful, juicy, smooth parts contrast sharply with the rough, monochromatic, massive boulders of the parched desert. The salad offers what the desert lacks. I savored every citrus-infused mouthful of this one, at Beresheet in Mizpeh Ramon.

Icing on the Cake: Testimonials

I’m very impressed by all the elements you are able to pack into the lesson without it seeming at all overwhelming: the review, the actual cooking skills, the creativity of coming up with their own dishes, the chance to present their creations, the opportunity to learn about and share thoughts on something else (in last week’s case, the feelings represented in the book), the execution of their  jobs, the responsibility for one’s station/implements and the overall following of directions…..all without losing the fun quotient. No wonder the kids love coming!  You’ve really created something special so kudos to you!
