Nothing can bring you closer to the essence of Israel than our fantastic hands-on cooking vacations. Our culinary tours take you way beyond the usual tourist experience to get to know the real Israel – tasting, smelling, seeing, touching and learning how to create delicious, authentic Israeli dishes yourself.

Our week-long cooking vacations start in magical Jerusalem, move on to green Galilee and finish in vibrant Tel Aviv. Each stop on our culinary tours reveals more about the vast variety of ethnic influences on Israeli cuisine – the immigrants who poured in from more than 120 lands, plus the centuries-old culinary traditions of local Arabs and Jews.

Savoring the Seven Species

In the Bible, Israel was known as the Land of Milk and Honey. Our cooking vacations will bring to life the biblical list of nature’s bounties: “… a land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig-trees and pomegranates; a land of olive-trees and honey…” These are the Seven Species, and they remain the backbone of the Mediterranean kitchen to this day.

You’ll get to know the Seven Species and more as our cooking vacations in Israel take you to a boutique dairy, to a special winery and to the spectacular open-air produce markets in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Not to mention a delicious, after-dark visits to the streets of Israel to experience street food and local culture.

Hands-on cooking vacations

And what’s cooking on our culinary tours? You’ll enjoy fascinating hands-on cooking classes, each one reflecting the unique and authentic features of its location:

– The Mediterranean way of eating, set in cosmopolitan Tel Aviv on the shores of that fabled sea

– The lore of local herbs and spices, at a spice farm in the Judean Hills

– The secrets of cheese-making, at a boutique dairy in Galilee

– The glory of Galilee cuisine, in an Arab kitchen in a Galilee village

– Cooking vacations are based on small groups (4-12 people) so we can go
behind the scenes and gain an insider’s insight into how the locals live.

Join us

Add to this rich blend of flavors and fragrances a wealth of breathtaking scenery and sacred sites, stir in superb restaurants and season with accommodations in charming boutique hotels.

The result: The cooking vacation of a lifetime – fun, relaxed, enlightening and downright delicious.
