CHASING SMOKE: ISRAEL

Description
We're back with the fourth episode in our series about our new book CHASING SMOKE, and this week we'll be sharing travel stories and recipes from our trip to Israel back in 2019 when travel was carefree.  In this episode we talk about our childhood memories of bonfires and barbecues growing up in Israel; we cook a whole aubergine on the fire with chilli garlic dressing, tahini and a charred egg yolk; we talk to our friend and photographer Patricia Niven who accompanied us on all our trips; and we catch up with Oshrat Yakutiel, our friend and Tel Aviv cafe owner, who joined us with her family on one of our cookbook shoot days in Israel. There's burnt potatoes in bonfires, fire pits, sun stroke, giant steaks and tips on how to avoid exploding aubergines...
