Hi everyone, welcome to my blog!
Here I will post my kitchen experiments and favorite recipes. A little about my influences - I was born in Moldova, I grew up in Israel, I moved to the USA, and I studied abroad in both Argentina and France. I've also traveled quite a bit and had friends from all over the world, so you can expect to find quite the random assortment of foods on this blog! However, if they made it here it means they've been tried and joyfully devoured!
Cooking food from places around the world is a journey for me and I love finding recipes from places I've been or haven't been and give them a try, so if you have any favorites, don't hesitate to share!
So here it is, I finally decided to find me a place online where all my journeys can coalesce, enjoy!

Kashk-e-Bademjaan (Eggplant Salad)

Based on eggplant and a whey (kashk), which can be found in specialty stores, this dip is minty, smooth, and brings excitement to the palate! If you cannot find Kashk around you, you may substitute for yogurt and the result is somewhat similar.

6 small eggplants
1 cup kashk
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 medium onions
2 tbsp dried mint or 200g fresh mint
Salt and pepper

1.       Peel and slice eggplants lengthwise to 1cm thickness, add salt and pepper and fry in oil on both sides until eggplant softens.
2.       Mix tomato paste with 1 cup hot water, add eggplants and cook on medium heat for 4-5mins. Remove from heat.
3.     Fry onion and mint separately, add to eggplant, along with kashk.
