The Official In Search of Israeli Cuisine Food Tour

Since finishing the film, we’ve been constantly asked if we’re going to lead food tours to Israel. It's usually the first question at a screening.

Yes! Florentine Films is partnering with Avihai Tsabari, the culinary guide of the film (he's in two scenes) and his company Via Sabra, to organize these customized, OFFICIAL food tours in Israel. Join an insider's adventure: meet the chefs, eat at their restaurants, discuss the issues with experts, and more. Or, let us customize a tour for your family or group, which we're doing for Temple Emanuel in New York and others in San Francisco, Santa Fe and more.

Guests will visit many of the restaurants, street food vendors, markets, wineries, cheese makers, farms, even ancient ruins where we filmed. You’ll sample the best of Israel’s culinary landscape. Chefs, writers, and journalists featured in the film will meet participants in intimate settings to discuss Israeli Cuisine, the dynamic food scene, it’s history and future. Chef Michael Solomonov will make special appearances throughout the tour, adding his insights to the mosaic of food and culture the tour offers. Our first tour was in May and was a great success!

Trip schedule:
November 9 – 17, 2017
MAY 11 – 19, 2017
January, 2017 tbd
