Israel’s Gourmet Food Festival

Taam Ha’ir (Taste of the City), now in its 15th year, recently returned to Tel Aviv’s Yehoshua Park for four tasty evenings in June.

About 20 of Tel Aviv’s best restaurants offered generous samples of their fare to some 300,000 people during the four-day, annual gourmet food festival held June 12th to 16th. Another 50 booths sold drinks and ingredients for home cooking, and there were children’s workshops and charity sales.

The cuisine available included beef over home fries in coffee sauce made by the chefs of Poike; and El Babur, located outside the Arab-Israeli city of Nazareth and renowned for its gourmet Arab dishes such as ground lamb skewered on a long cinnamon stick.
