Israeli food is “yummy”

A new Taglit tour of Israel concentrates on the culinary delights of Israel. Participants (mostly chefs) learn about Israeli cuisine, meet Israeli chefs and visit organic farms in the desert, boutique wineries and markets. A participant described it as a “bonding experience with the land through food.”
