about eating around israel.

Eating Around Israel is a contemporary Israeli culinary experience taking place both in and out of Israel. Our "shuk" food tours offer an inside look and taste into the Israeli culinary scene. We will explore the cultures and food that lie at the heart of the shuks, the local markets of Israel. You can also bring the flavors of Israel into your home, with our online spice shop, featuring the best and freshest Israeli spices and teas. And the online Eating Around Israel cookbook (*coming soon*) will inspire your cooking with the flavors and aroma of Israel, featuring recipes by home cooks and chefs from all over the world.

Hi, I'm Gavi :) Originally from New York, I moved to Israel in 2012 and started working in various restaurants in the Machane Yehudah Market, or “the shuk.” There, I fell in love with everything that the eclectic landmark in the heart of Jerusalem has to offer. With a lifelong passion for all things food and coming from a true “foodie” family, working in the food industry was a no-brainer. The shuk was a great start - from the worldwide cuisine to the vegetable vendors, from the graffiti-filled walls to the street musicians, the shuk truly has something for everybody. With that in mind, I started Eating Around Israel Food Tours, giving tourists and locals alike the chance to embark on a customized tour with a seasoned local.
