More than Hummus and Rugelach: Israel’s Culinary Heritage

When people think of Israel’s food, it’s likely they think of hummus, rugelach or falafel. But there’s a wide range of Israeli dishes that celebrate the country’s culture and heritage.  If you’re looking for a way to create memories that will last and to expand your palate as well, consider immersing yourself in the foods of the region, like the ones described below.

[box title="Cholent" style="soft" box_color="#b35500" title_color="#ffffff" radius="6"]In Israel, cholent, otherwise known as Jewish stew, is a slow-cooked meal that is extremely popular during Shabbat. In fact, the recipe was developed over the centuries to align with Jewish laws that prohibit cooking on the Sabbath. According to multiple sources, the dish boils on Friday before the Sabbath, and then is placed into a slow cooker or oven on low heat until the next day. Cholent typically includes meat, potatoes, beans and barley. However, Sephardic Jews often substitute rice for the beans and barley and chicken for the beef. They may also add whole eggs, shell included! Ashkenazi Jews often include a sausage casing or chicken neck skin stuffed with flour.[/box]

Israel Insiders: Perfect Singles Trip to Israel

Have you dreamed of touring Israel but put it off because you didn't want to travel alone?

Gil Travel has the solution for you! Our Israel Insiders Tour allows individuals to explore Israel with a group of like-minded singles.

In Israel, there are growing numbers of single individuals and fewer couples than in years past. Israelis use the term “seeking” to describe individuals who are looking to start a relationship. Because so many singles love to travel, we have designed a program specifically for them.  On the Israel Insiders Tour, scheduled for November 8-17, 2014, participants between the ages of 45 to 65 will meet the leaders of Israel’s high tech companies and start-ups, and spend time with a local journalist to learn about Israel’s present-day issues, while exploring the country’s cultural and historical sites. It's a perfect combination of mixing business with pleasure!
