Now that a nice amount of rain has blessed our land, it’s time to get back out into nature and visit the valleys of Israel. Winter flowers are beginning to blossom just in time for the 14th annual Ta’amim Ba’amakim (Tastes in the Valleys) Festival. From January 28 to February 11, this popular festival combines magical nature, hikes, attractions and of course lots of good food made from fresh locally grown produce. This year, the festival is celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday along with seven decades of culinary achievements. To this end, each participating restaurant will highlight its flagship dish with an Israeli flag.

The juxtaposition of good food with history and nature is a great way to draw tourists to the region, stretching from Megiddo to the Gilboa. During the twoweek festival, thousands of Israelis and guests will flock to this area to enjoy the beautiful landscape, taste fresh produce and hike through the valleys. Meals at participating restaurants range from NIS 79 to NIS 109 (including a glass of local wine), and there are also excellent exhibitions worth visiting.
