What happens when you put a passionate New York foodie in Israel? A lot, at least if you judge by Katherine Martinelli’s website.  Not so much a documentary of Israeli eating and drinking (though there’s that, too), the site’s more an expression of Martinelli’s global passion for food, a passion she’s had since early years in her family’s Manhattan apartment, watching her father sautée garlic and tomatoes in olive oil.

In the interest of full disclosure (I always wanted to say that) I’ll admit I once had the pleasure of working with Katherine. I’d offer that up as some kind of personal bias towards her work, except no bias is required to justify digging her website. You’ll see pretty immediately, it’s just awesome.
