Cheese in Israel

One of the things that I look forward to when I go to Israel is the cheese. They always have a good variety of cheese on the hotel buffets, especially for breakfast. I will usually fill most of a plate with different cheeses.

These were very interesting as the cheese had a very assertive flavor. They were really good, but others in the group didn’t seem to like them šŸ™‚ I would often go back for more.

Olive Pizza, Jacob's Pizza, Jerusalem Pizza, Kosher PizzaWell I guess I should also add in the cheese that is on the pizza at Jacob’s Pizza.

I am ready to go back to Israel, but for much more than just the good cheese šŸ™‚
