You can often hear the locals — and indeed many “seasoned” travelers — say that food in Israel is something of a national sport. As soon as you get to Israel it is quickly becoming normal to order two dishes from the menu to sate your growing appetite. Who could’ve known that salad portions are measured in buckets? Or that you will only get to the bottom of your soup dish after a continuous 10-minute long marathon of consuming that soup?
Going on a trip to Israel you will find yourself unable to resist the temptation to visit one of the many restaurants for a delicious meal. In Jerusalem you will be treated to a turkey shawarma, in Tel-Aviv and Acre — the luxurious variety of fresh seafood, to fairy tale oriental sweets in Nazareth, and, of course, and it is simply impossible to leave the shores of Kineret — the Sea of Galilee — without tasting the famous St. Peter’s fish. Bedouins in the Negev desert treat their guests with fried lamb, while in Eilat travelers will enjoy a barbecued barracuda. All these dishes, while varying slightly due to the country of origins, are always supplemented by traditional sides: hummus, tehina, falafel, spicy salads and olives..
Naturally the wine and gastronomic tours are of the most interest to the real gourmets, to whom the culinary dish is not just food, but rather a work of art, with exquisite touches of local traditions. However, the “regular” tourists and travelers too, often gladly indulge in acquaintance with the local culinary works and national gastronomical peculiarities of the host country.
Culinary tourism is gaining momentum all over the world. It is also true, however, that there often is simply not enough information about the places, where a pleasant trip can be combined with tasting and purchasing of delicious products. Now, you can always get all the information you need both from our managers and our experienced and professional guides.
«Israel2Go» will prepare for you a wide variety of excursion programs and master classes, which will include visits to the best Israeli restaurants, markets and bazaars, farms and dairies, vineyards and wineries; together we will pay a visit to the picturesque Jewish housewives, who have long since arrived to the Promised Land from the countries of their origins, and who have managed to preserve the peculiarities and the secrets of their traditional cuisines.. The aim of our excursions and master classes is to acquaint the tourist closer with the “real” Israeli cuisine, to discover the secrets of its foods, and certainly — most of all — to taste it. Together we will determine whether it’s necessary or sufficient for a restaurant to have a Michelin star and the best chefs in the world working, in order to satisfy the needs and the high demands of the travelers, embarking on a culinary tour.
