The Competition

The competition, held in Rimini Fiera in Italy, included four different categories. Israel won two of them: Innovative Bread with a Health Focus and Baked Dessert. In the first category, the Israelis prepared a modern version of pita bread with falafel. They baked green pita bread (with spinach), filled it with cheese balls coated with pistachio, and sprinkled yogurt sauce on top. For dessert, the team prepared Black Forest-style strawberry and fruit brioche.

Accommodation for Every Palette

The state of Israel is a melting pot like no other, with its cuisine is defined by the origin of those who make it. With citizens originating from every corner of the world, Israel can accommodate tourists with every palette and every budget. Israeli baked goods are no exception with everything from traditional Jewish challah bread to Italian Focaccia, not to mention the array of baked desserts.
