Happy Hearts Day

A dream Valentine's Day breakfast! I took this photo last January in Ein Karem, Israel --an upscale Jerusalem suburb--where John the Baptist was born. The morning light in the beautiful Brasserie Ein Karem was gorgeous, bordering on luminous, the croissants were warm and fresh from the oven, and the cappuccino was obviously made with love. Can a picture capture a poem?

See "Glorious Eats in Israel": a story I wrote for the Minneapolis Star Tribune recently on more great food in the Land of Milk and Honey.
