|Pork On The Menu In Israel
Sunday, January 3 2010
Israel – A retired Jewish cardiologist is set to make history – and generate a bit of controversy – with Israel`s first ever cookery book devoted to pork. While that may not sound interesting to those outside the region – bear in mind the animal`s meat is forbidden to religious Jews and Muslims. More than that, it is also taboo in broader Israeli society. The majority of Israelis may be secular, but pork is rarely mentioned in the Israeli media, and almost never shown on television. Eli Landau is undaunted.
