May 31, 2017 Hotel News No Comments Email Email
Famed Israeli Chef Uri Buri Jeremias, owner and visionary behind Efendi Hotel, has launched new, exclusive guided culinary tours in the Old City of Akko’s historic market, paired with chef-led dining experiences at the chef’s acclaimed namesake restaurant, now available through private reservation.

The one-of-a-kind experience begins in Efendi Hotel’s Byzantine-era wine cellar with an information session on how to choose, maintain and cook fish. Guests then put knowledge into practice during a two-hour guided walking tour of Akko’s marketplace where participants can meet and mingle with generations-old shopkeepers and peruse the authentic Middle Eastern spice stalls. Participants will be able to experience first-hand how Chef Uri Jeremias chooses the fish and seafood he then serves at Uri Buri restaurant, where guests will have an intimate lunch with the toque himself. Uri Buri restaurant was voted ‘Best Restaurant In The Middle East’ as part of the 2016 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.

The culinary market tours follow the launch of Crusader Academic Seminars, History, Culture and Dining Packages offered in Akko, the Western Galilee region and Efendi Hotel. The seminars launched in conjunction with Efraim Lev, a Professor in the Department of Land of Israel Studies at Technion University, allow participants to experience the entire local history and flavor through the knowing eyes of scholars, guides and academics. The four-day seminars include full board with three meals a day, lectures by academics and visits to archeological sites.

Private culinary tours with Uri Buri can be reserved for $675US per couple. The cost for additional guests is $170US per person for up to 20 people. The pricing excludes wine at Uri Buri.
