We didn't quite know what to expect. It was a truly unique experience. We would never have been able to do this ourselves. We gained a whole new understanding of how Arabs live in Israel."

Jeanette, Queens N.Y.

We had never been to an Arab village before. I'd heard that Arab cooking is really exotic. And now we cooked it ourselves. And of course, ate it. I would recommend it to everyone.

Yum. Come on an empty stomach.

We were most impressed by Sahel's (who ran the workshop) patience and willingness to explain to us what we were doing. As we sat down to eat, we looked down the table and couldn't believe we'd prepared all that. I have the recipes. I hope I can replicate it when I get home.

Habib and Minerva at Ezba were fantastic. I think that I can now make everything that you see in the picture. No, I do not dream of opening a restaurant but my boys should enjoy some of this grub.

Richard. Tuval, Israel

I will be telling all my friends that this is a must-do in Israel. They've seen already the Kotel, Tel Aviv and the Sea of Galilee. Now they should see a different Israel. And have fun and a great meal at the same time.

Scott and Skye, Vancouver

This is culinary tourism in its essence. I was struck by the authenticity of what our hosts had us prepare.
