VIDEO: How is pita made?
by Najeer Yusof
PITA comes from the Hebrew term pat, which means bread. The pita is a staple Israeli food. Many types of street food in Israel include pita. Pita can be eaten as a pocket with fillings, or with toppings which can be sweet or savoury.
In Singapore – we have strong ties with Israel – traditional pita bread can be sampled from Pita Bakery at Bali Lane. The bakery, which was first established in Israel in 1988, launched here in 2014. Mr Yuri Ustaev, 30, the bakery’s general manager, said that it is the only place in Singapore that bakes fresh pita using traditional Israeli methods.
There is more to Israeli cuisine than just pita. The ongoing “Open A Door To Israel” exhibition at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre will feature a wider variety of Israeli food and provide visitors with an interactive experience of the Israeli culture through nine interactive LED panels. The exhibition, which opened on Dec 9, will run until Dec 23.
