In January, along 4 talented Spanish speaking food bloggers: Bren, Txaber, Clara and Layla, I traveled to Israel to discover the culinary roots, trends and scene of this young #startupnation. Cocooned by NGO VibeIsrael we attended an amazing array of food-ie related events, from (obviously) countless breakfasts, lunches, dinners; to cooking classes, wine and spirits tasting, bar hopping, and even a geek session with Israeli creatives and entrepreneurs working in the fields of food and internet.
One favorite activity amongst my Latino and Spanish blogger friends during our #VibeComida tour was with no doubt the visits to food markets. We wandered around the beautiful Machane Yehuda in Jerusalem (more on that in another post), the small but super cute sort-of wet market in Akko, and Levinsky market in Tel Aviv. I loved each one of them for different reasons, but Lewinksy stop was special, probably because all those surrounding Bauhaus/International style architecture, but most certainly for the company.
