Israeli, Middle-Eastern, Mediterranean Cuisine Certification

When you want to learn a language, the best thing to do is to live in the country where that language is spoken. Similarly, when you want to learn the cuisine of a certain region, it's best to learn it in its origin. So for Israeli cuisine, there's no place to learn it but Israel. Food is absolutely central to Israel's culture. They've created and refined delicious dishes like Shakshouka, Majadra, Falafel, Kubbeh, Mousakka, and of course, Hummus. 

Ben Gurion University Eilat is offering a free 5-month culinary arts certification in Israeli, Middle-Eastern, and Mediterranean cuisine. The certification takes place at Ben Gurion University's Eilat in their fully equipped teaching kitchen.

On the menu are theoretical studies and practical cooking classes. For theory, you'll learn about wines and alcohol, nutrition, food hygiene and sanitation, kitchen safety, as well as what it takes to run a kosher kitchen.
