Delicious Israel offers foodies and culture-seekers a unique and adventurous way to vacation and connect with Israel – through their passion. Our culinary and boutique specialty tours are limited to small groups so that together we can veer off the beaten path to eat, explore, learn and experience the authentic “insider” scene of Israeli lifestyle, history and culture.
Israel has a long-standing history as part of the ancient spice route, and Tel Aviv’s modern trends are reliving this importance. The Levinsky market dates back to the 1920s, founded by Balkan immigrants who brought their local flavors with them. The market takes us back eras as many of the family’s next generation are still running the stores. Gourmet restaurant chefs come for fresh spices, dried fruits and store-roasted coffees, as well as olive oils and deli goods. On this tour we will taste throughout the market and meet the owners of the shops – grandfathers and sons working together telling a story of Israel’s ethnic and culinary history.
