With a nickname like “the land of milk and honey,” it should be no surprise Israel is jam-packed with delicious food and drink. If you’re not familiar with what to taste, how to order it or where to find the best stall among the troves in Israel’s bustling markets, don’t despair: Delicious Israel is here to help. Former attorney and amateur chef Inbal Baum emigrated from the United States to Israel in 2009 and ultimately opened Delicious Israel in 2011 to share her passions for Israeli cuisine and culture with visitors.
Delicious Israel tours take the food-curious through the vibrant markets of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, introducing them not just to the must-try bites and sips, but, perhaps more importantly, to the individuals and families behind the cities’ most quintessential recipes, shops and cafés. A trip to the market with Delicious Israel is an invitation behind the scenes of culinary traditions, both ancient and modern, with those continuing and adapting those methods today. You’ll travel through the thick of market chaos, but don’t be surprised to find yourself on detours through random alleys away from the commotion of busy streets, dropping in through doors you would have otherwise overlooked to find the most authentic morsels prepared by the most charismatic characters. Baum and her team of culinary gurus know exactly where to go and whom to meet, passing on history and heritage with every bite.
For a truly intimate experience, those visiting Tel Aviv can also enjoy a Shabbat dinner hosted in a local home. Participate in the Shabbat blessing over wine and challah, then sit down to dinner showcasing Israel’s cuisine and customs, as only Delicious Israel can facilitate. Tours are available in groups or for private hire, and can be booked here.
