About Israel Food Tours
Israel Food Tours was founded because of our passion for Israeli food and our desire to share with you Israel's exceptional culinary diversity and complexity. Our tours aim to create a connection with location and its people through the shared experience of local cuisine. We visit every geographic region from the Negev desert to the Galilean mountains in Northern Israel, as we introduce you to a wide variety of ethnic cuisines that comprise the contemporary culture of Israeli food. At the moment we are not offering tours, as we engage in other culinary projects, but check back in with us in the future to see if this changes.

Today we had the pleasure of tasting, seeing, learning about the wonderful produce, nuts, spices, cheeses, baking....you name it... available in Jerusalem. A friend and I met Ben Brewer, of Israel Food Tours, at a coffee shop near the market in the Mehane Yehuda area and had a fabulous time walking through the market sampling all kinds of foods and completed the tour with a great lunch. Ben was an incomparable host. A friend back home will be thrilled that I will be bringing back some ground Sumac for her! Highly recommended.

Hi Diane, I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and I had a great time exploring and eating our way through the Shuk along with Suzanne. I hope you've put the Sumac to good use and were inspired by the spices and foods you ate while in Israel. Best, Ben

I thoroughly enjoyed the food tour with Ben. He was very knowledgeable about food and history. We got to sample very good, and unique foods on this tour - like hummus with fava beans, date cookies, yemenite flat bread, Arab coffee, lot of exotic spice blends etc. Ben's style is very casual and approachable, which I enjoyed a lot.

Wow! I'm an American who has been to Israel more times than I can count and so it's hard to find something "new and different" to do when I visit. Israel Food Tours created a special tour for me and some friends that blew us away. We first went to a private chef's quickfire tasting in a beautifully renovated industrial space. For foodies like us who watch "Top Chef" religiously, this was a great, unique way to start our day. We then headed to the Druze village of Daliyat-el-Carmel, where we were taken to the home of one of the town's most established families, who shared their fascinating history with us over some of the best Druze food I've ever eaten. They were absolutely lovely and made us feel as if we were old friends who had come over for lunch. I never would have been able to have this sort of authentic experience on my own and I left with a deeper understanding of the Druze culture and society--as well as a happy belly. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who loves food, is curious about the nuances of Israeli society, and is looking for a unique activity.

Not only did we eat the best hummus and Indian food Israel has to offer, but we toured a city only minutes from our doorstep. Our guide, Liz, was like a magician who continuously revealed surprises and secrets within this often overlooked city. She explained to us the history of foods and flavours and she made sure that we understood the complexity of seemingly simple foods. It was a fantastic day, relaxed, perfectly paced and a great trip me and my friends. - Lauren Friedman, Jerusalem
