The Pilpel falafel recipe was created by my grandfather more than 60 years ago. As a kid I used to work in his restaurant where he taught me everything I know about making falafel, including his secret recipe. He showed me how to make them perfectly crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside… little pieces of heaven.
At 84 years old he still tirelessly loved to make his falafels, even when his family told him to relax and enjoy life. At the age of 29 years I had a vision: maybe the only thing that would give Gramps peace of mind was for me to keep the falafel rolling.
