Shuk Cooking workshop

Cooking workshop of the Machane Yehuda Market
A unique workshop that combines a colorful and fragrant tour of the market, with a cooking workshop from all the good the market has to offer. We will begin an experiential tour of the Mahane Yehuda market, the most beautiful market in Israel. We will get to know the old bastas alongside these new ones. We will hear the story of the market from its inception to the present day, and we will smell and taste the best of it. We will continue in a Jerusalem cooking workshop from an Arab and Israeli kitchen, where we will learn the various raw materials, learn different cooking techniques and try to prepare dishes, simple, fast, colorful and especially tasty!

The workshop ends with a meal!

In each workshop we will prepare about 8 servings, which vary according to season and stock at the market.
