Cooking creatively to celebrate Tu Bishvat is a little like peeking into a mystery basket of unrelated elements on CHOPPED and wondering: now what?
Except that the ingredients we celebrate on this holiday are related because they are the seven edible species mentioned most frequently in the Bible (Deut.8:8). So our challenge is to find a way to bring figs, grapes, pomegranates, olives, dates, wheat and barley to the festive meal as we celebrate their abundance in Israel.
