When people ask me about my job, and what it’s like to work in hi-tech in Israel, I tell them about how good the working conditions are. For example, each floor of the building I work in has two fully stocked kitchens. And when I say fully stocked, I mean really fully stocked. You could fix yourself breakfast, lunch and dinner from what’s available. (And people do, though the on site milky cafe and meaty dining room are more common locations for lunch.)

Unfortunately – for my sweet tooth – the available food also includes less essential, but desirable items. For example, each kitchen has three different, and perpetually topped up, big jars of biscuits. Fairly regularly, reinforcements of cake are introduced. And apart from labane, hummus, and cottage cheese, there is one spread that is forever popular and a regular part of the scene.


It’s enough to make you hungry!
