the famous hummus recipe by yotam ottolenghi and sami tamimi

Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's famous basic hummus recipe

If you follow along my blog you will know that I had an exceptional experience in Israel in January and I still havent recovered from the most amazing meals I enjoyed there. I also ate a fair amount of hummus, because when you are in Jerusalem, that is what you do. The best version of what we ate was at a tiny cafe just outside the Machane Yehuda Market. It was smooth and creamy with a delicious flavour and served with pita bread, falafel and a few pickles and condiments. Continue Reading →

The Methane Yehudi Market, Jerusalem

So if you follow my blog or me on social media you would have seen that last month I spent an amazing couple of weeks in Israel. I was invited along with a few other international bloggers to sample the very best that Israeli food has on offer and share a few of  my stories. It was a once in a life-time experience arranged by Vibe Israel – a non-profit organization that promotes Israel to the world as a vibrant hub of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. Of course the culinary scene is a big part of that and why we were there.

Eat, Israel

I took a huge delicious bite out of Israel and hardly know where to start, so here are a few of my highlights (roughly in the order they were experienced). Continue Reading →


the sarona market in tel aviv

Sarona Market Tel Aviv

I’m a little obsessed with food markets and when I travel they tend to be a highlight for me. The Mehane Yehudi Market in Jerusalem is one of the most exciting I have ever visited and steeped in tradition dating back to the Ottoman Empire. The Sarona Market on the other hand is a very new market and build in a modern complex in the business district of Tel Aviv. It’s a gourmet and consumer product market with every kind of delicious food imaginable. You will find boutique craft beers – even one made from chickpeas, French champagne, seafood from the Mediterranean, fruit and vegetables from all over Israel and delicious halva and pastries. Its a lifestyle market with many kitchen counter restaurants to eat at. The inspiration for the market comes from the leading markets worldwide, such as Borough Market in London, Chelsea Market in New York, La Boqueria in Barcelona, and the global Eataly chain of markets, and its a must-visit place for anyone interested in food and eating in Tel Aviv.

the machane yehuda market in jerusalem

Machane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem

The Machane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem is an icon in Israel and one of the most vibrant and exciting markets I have ever visited. It has a long history dating back to the Ottoman period, but todays space is more modern while still holding onto an old-world appeal. When the stalls shut down, it turns into the hottest venue in Jerusalem’s night life, with bars, restaurants and live music venues taking over the space.

Machane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem

I have just got back from the most amazing food tour to Israel and if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen all the delicious food pics I have been posting under the #VibeFood hashtag. I was invited by Vibe Israel along with 5 other international digital influencers to experience the best that the Israeli culinary scene has to offer. In short I was blown away, and I can’t wait to tell a few stories about my trip. I’m also planning to share amazing recipes, so brace yourself for some Middle Eastern flavours. In the meantime I loved the Machane Yehuda market so much and stayed on in Jerusalem for 3 nights after the tour ended so I could get a proper dose of it. I obviously took hundreds of pictures, so this is my visual story of the market, a must-do place to visit in Israel. I can’t adequately express how much I loved taking these images and sharing  them with you here Continue Reading →
