Opened restaurants and food for Passover

A guest chef and a hosting chef too, a restaurant that transforms, and a team that swaps places, why not, actually. A dish that gets its own roof (and walls), but also a “hole in the wall” worthy enough for us to report. Eilat and Haifa, Sharon and Shfela, and Tel Aviv (but definitely not just her).

In short, welcome to Israel’s food news. And this time – a tasty and festive journey from North to South, with all the stops along the way. And that’s just the first course.

Bon appétit!
