Your host Shira
Shira is a Jerusalem-based baker, gastronome, travel lover, junior photographer and an alumna of the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy, where she obtained a master of gastronomy and food cultures. Born to an American mother and Israeli father, Shira's background made the relationship between food, culture and heritage evident (and enjoyed!) in her house: kubbeh (Iraqi meat dumpling) was as celebrated as bagel with cream cheese and lox! Shira’s father is the family's chief baker, and he passed the baking genes on to her. Bread, cakes, cookies and pies of all kinds are among Shira’s favorite things to bake and serve (her flatmates are always very happy!). Food has always been Shira’s favorite way to explore and experience new places and cultures and she is now excited to share her local food wisdom and cooking secrets with travelers from all around the world!
