Israel Tour Guide – Knafe – a local Mediterranean desert
I assume that you all have tasted balaclava – but have you tasted knafe?
This is a local and original Arab desert.
It’s a pastry – really an Arab cheese cake made with goat cheese and honey , topped with rose-petal juice and different nuts – mainly pistachio. Some bakeries wil use rasberry sauce instead of rose-petal juice.
Oh so tasty with a small black and strong coffee.
Ask your Israel tour guide to make sure to take you to a vendor.
