My very good friend Uzi Varon is a professional photographer based in Helsinki Finland. He has just completed a recent visit to Israel to photograph articles for various Finnish magazines. Being a talented chef himself and working with the food industry for years, I hold him to be somewhat of an authority when it comes to food. I was pleasantly surprised to hear his statement:
"Yes I just got back from Tuscany and as you know I been more than once to France, but currently the food in Israel gives both of them a serious run for their money."
