Home Hospitality

Meet the locals for a more in depth experience. We offer home hospitality with, amongst others, Druze, Bedouin and Orthodox Jewish families.

Your hosts will prepare traditional food in their home kitchens and invite you to partake as they explain about their culture. By tradition, Bedouin and Druze meals are eaten whilst seated on the floor. Bedouin food is cooked in the ground, and in our opinion their bread is pretty much unbeatable! Druze food shares much in common with wider Middle Eastern cuisine and offers dishes such as hummus, labane (a dip made from goats cheese), simply cooked meats, and vegetables cooked in rich tomato sauces. Orthodox Jewish home hospitality tends to take place on a Friday evening so that you can join the special Sabbath (Shabbat) feast, which from a culinary perspective borrows much from Eastern Europe. If you would like to take some Israeli recipes home, please just ask us and we’ll be happy to follow up with your hosts to see what secrets they are prepared to divulge!

Our dinner tonight proved to be a real genuine experience with Aliza not only a fantastic cook but a warm intelligent woman. My husband and her discovered they both had origins from same town in Italy. It felt like being with friends.
