Shuk and Cook

Heritage Food and Drink Private Historical Art

Join me on a culinary adventure in Tel Aviv’s historic neighbourhood of Florentine or the Yemenite Quarter. We will visit Levinsky or Carmel Market and learn about their history and evolution. You will be introduced to shop owners and their heritage and taste traditional dishes. You will be shown the unique ingredients that make up the diverse cuisine found in Israel. The adventure will continue in my kitchen with a workshop on signature dishes found in Israel using ingredients from the market. We will conclude with a feast of flavours and cocktails
