New flavors are my favorite discoveries. When at home, I'm drooling over these pictures. When I finally get on the road my mind is on vacation but taste buds are at work. When I get back it's time to start cooking.
Wadi Nisnas in Haifa is a neighborhood of white cobblestone streets and whimsical public art projects, but the best reason to visit might be the bakeries. This baklava is not only delicious but beautiful too, lined up in symmetrical rows or stacked like a Mayan pyramid. If you're like me, you'll leave with a boxful, because you'll want to try them all. I can't remember the name of this particular bakery, but just window-shop along the main drag and look for the pyramids!
