Biblical Foods on the Contemporary Israeli Menu
An old/new tour of ancient products still common today in their native land. The Bible mentions a Land of Israel rich with dates, grapes, pomegranates, figs, olives, hyssop, barley, wheat and honey. In the time of Jesus, Herod stored Judean Hills wines in his hideaway at Masada. The oldest wheat cultivar in human history was found in... the Galilee, where it has been grown for 23,000 years. On this tour, we taste what they did.
