My boyfriend (Israeli native) and I wanted to do something different and this was a great way to experience the city in a new way. Aliya, our chef and host, was so down to earth and made the cooking experience so easy. Having tried a number of different kinds of cooking classes in Italy, Spain, and Mexico, I have to say Aliya's was one of my favorites because she didn't go too technical with the cooking and made quite frankly, everything was delicious. She sends you the recipes after class and I'm excited to try the dishes at home with friends.

The proprietor, Aliya Fastman, is a knowledgeable, pleasant, hands-on teacher who gives everyone a chance to participate in food preparation. Her studio, a separate, well-equipped kitchen, is conveniently located in the heart of Tel Aviv. If anything, the cost was a little low; but the food was delicious! I heartily recommend her!

I've been attending weekly workshops at Citrus & Salt for the past couple of months and love it. Aliya and Shaendl are excellent teachers. I was looking for English speaking cooking classes and could not have found a better place to be. The classes are laid back, fun, and the best part is that you get to eat your creations at the end of class :) The studio is conveniently located in Florentin off of Ha'aliya.

First of all, Aliya Fastman, the owner, was so welcoming and flexible. Second, the recipes were spot on for taking home a good souvenir from Israel. Third, the atmosphere was homey and the location was in a sweet neighborhood in Tel Aviv and easy to find. Finally, she saved me from a disappointing end of my vacation.

Here’s the story:

I had scheduled a cooking class with another cooking vendor (Jon’s Carmel Market Cooking Tour) and he canceled my class at the last minute! 😡 I had been corresponding with him for months about my reservation and confirmed the week before so I was very upset with this unprofessional treatment.

I searched for others and found Citrus and Salt! After completing the contact form and calling her to explain my predicament, she told me she did not have a class scheduled for the day I wanted, but she could offer me a private lesson for me and my husband. I was thrilled! She moved her schedule around and made my dream cooking class happen within 24 hours! She’s not only a friendly cooking instructor, she’s a super business woman and customer service provider!

We made humus, roasted eggplant and tahini, falafel, and Shakshuka. She had snacks and wine for us. She accepts credit cards. She’s on WhatsApp so she easy to communicate with. Definitely give her class a try if you are planning a trip to Israel. My only piece of advice is to eat a light breakfast and skip lunch. I ate all the food! 💗

I've had the pleasure of attending two workshops at Citrus and Salt. The whole process of learning about the dishes we were making, while meeting new people and getting to eat the delicious fruits of our labor was both enjoyable and educational!

They really make it feel as though you're just learning to cook delicious food in your friend's kitchen at home. I would totally recommend Aliya and Shaendl's workshops to anybody who likes good food and good people!

I have the time of my life cooking different thai dishes with Aliya. She is beyond knowledgeable.

She taught us about the history of the dishes, the precise geographical location where the ingredients can be found, and even stores within tel aviv where where we could find them so we could make it at home. On top of that she is one of the nicest person I've ever met, she is extremely charismatic, and patient with the people attending.

Moreover, the price is absolutely affordable so everyone can attend it. This is by far the best cooking class you can attend in tel aviv. Cant wait to attend the next one!

My partner and I had such a fun time cooling with Aliya. The food was tasty, the conversation enjoyable, and the process required an appropriate amount of work. Would recommend to anyone interested in learning more about Israeli food and culture.

We really enjoyed joining the Israeli Meze Class. It was a fun mixed group and Aliya did a great job guiding through the single steps and introducing us to the little secrets of the local cuisine. Thank you for this wonderful, enjoyable afternoon! Food is culture and this way we could bring home a little piece of it. We are looking forward to preparing the recipes again and serving them to our friends and family! !

We've taken a cooking class during our vacation (israeli food). It was a great experience (very lovely with the two sisters and the little one). We really learned how to cook it on our own in a familial atmosphere instead of just following a recipe. And of course the food was really delicious!!! Therefore the next stop once we are home will be the grocery store to try it again. Will recommend this to everyone we know planing to visit Tel Aviv :)

My family and I went to a the Classic Israeli cooking class with Aliya and had a great time! It was very hands on; we made the food ourselves under Aliya's very clear direction and coordination. Our group was mixed ages from 7 and up, and Aliya did a great job ensuring each person had the chance to participate and contribute appropriately. Everyone had a great time, learned something, and we had a delicious meal at the end. Aliya provided all the recipes to download, so we can recreate at home. I would definitely recommend a class at Citrus & Salt!
