Israeli TV shows Jamie Oliver savoring a full array of eggs, cheeses and salads at Jerusalem cafe


Famed UK chef Jamie Oliver visited Israel and one of his breakfasts, eaten at a Jerusalem cafe, recently hit prime time on Israel’s Food Channel.

The two-minute video shows Oliver walking into Kalo, a popular cafe on Bethlehem Road in the Baka neighborhood.

He takes a glance at the menu and is impressed by the breakfast, which includes an array of different vegetables in keeping with his show, “Jamie’s Meat-Free Meals.”

“All these vegetables, when would you ever see that on a regular menu?” he asked.

The waiter tells him the standard “Israeli breakfast,” consisting of eggs, salad, cheeses and bread, was a kibbutz creation.
