Israel and the Holy Land boast unique culinary experiences, and we are firm believers that immersing oneself in a new culture involves connecting with locals and sampling their food – there is no better way to bond than over a shared meal. So, don't just observe and listen – engage your senses and savor the flavors! 

The influx of immigrants from various parts of the globe has resulted in a diverse array of culinary delights packed into a small geographical area. Exploring food markets and perusing menus will expose you to cuisines from the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and East Asia. While these culinary traditions were once kept separate, modern local chefs now delight in blending different styles to create innovative new dishes. 

On a side note, Israel and the Holy Land are ideal destinations for vegetarians and vegans. In addition to well-prepared meat dishes, the region offers vegetarian classics like hummus and falafel (both made from chickpeas), sabich (featuring aubergine, egg, potato, and herbs), and shakshuka (eggs poached in a flavorful tomato and pepper sauce).
