I popped by Whole Foods the other day, and all I can say is that I'm really glad I don't live anywhere near there, because 5 products later, I was $33.80 poorer. I did, however, get stuff that I'd never be able to find anywhere near home. I got my hands on some Haloumi cheese, and I found these lovely creatures, as well.
Of course, at $2.99 EACH, you'd expect them to either look prettier, or at the very least be covered with gold.
One of my favourite places to eat in Tel Aviv is a cafe called Orna & Ella. They make a really fantastic passionfruit tart, which I look for the minute I walk in (the pastries are displayed on the gorgeous wood counter). In spite of my cousin having gone to school with one of them, I never did get my hands on the recipe, so now I have to figure out how to make it (or a poor facsimile of it) on my own. I'll provide photographic evidence of whatever I come up with later.Posted by raptorgirl at March 21, 2004 02:39 PM
