As a child I always looked forward to overnight guests, a little for the company, but more importantly for the breakfast spread I knew that my mother would be preparing the next morning! In Jerusalem, breakfast is traditionally a mezza-style affair with a huge assortment of fresh fruits, vegetables, cheeses, dips, charcuteries and baked goods that beautifully fill the table like a mosaic art piece for family to share and enjoy together. Come share your first Palestinian Tea Party with me!
