Home Cookin’ !!! … Living “In the Stone” in Old Jaffa, Israel

On the Menu:
Spicy Lamb Wraps
Couscous with lemon
Lamb Rib Chops with Quick Cherry Pan Sauce

One thing I didn't want to do in this new blog section of is to force myself to present these totally authentic dishes form all over the world (if there even is such a thing as "totally authentic" anymore).

That's not what I'm trying to do, just tying to create a "cyber-cookbook" of things I wanna try, with a little theme to make a fun and creative web browse…you know.

And this home in Old Jaffa, Tel Aviv Israel , inspired me because like me, it is not trying to be totally traditional…

It is a bit of the traditional, but well designed for the present, and looking toward the future….just like me 🙂

Lamb Rib Chops with Quick Cherry Pan Sauce

The Healthy Chef's "healthy morsel":  With organic ingredients, this recipe is perfectly healthy. This recipe calls for flour and I'm "technically" gluten free, and I have no gluten issues, I don't worry about occasional flour in my recipes.

Earth Wind & Fire: "In the Stone"
(ENJOY!!! While you browse the post)

…..about the crib

The 180 square meter residential home is located in Old Jaffa. Its location is unique in that it is set above the harbor, facing west with all of its openings facing the majestic splendor of the Mediterranean Sea. Whilst it is difficult to determine the buildings exact age, it is clear that it is hundreds of years old.

Over the years, it has undergone many changes and had many additions made that have damaged the original quality of the building and its spaces. The central idea was to restore the structure’s original, characteristics, the stone walls, the segmented ceilings and the arches including the exposure of the original materials (a combination of pottery and beach sand).

The building has been cleaned of all of the extraneous elements, from newer wall coverings and has undergone a peeling process to expose its original state. The modern is expressed by the opening of spaces and by altering the internal flow to one more open and free environment along with the use of stainless steel, iron and Korean in the various partitions, in the openings and in the furniture.

The project succeeds in both honoring and preserving the historical and almost romantic values of the structure whilst creating a contemporary project, modern and suited to its period. Despite the time differences, the tensions and the dichotomy between the periods exist in a surprisingly balanced and harmonic space, and a hint of minimalist living in the future.
