Tel Aviv, Israel has been named one of the best destinations for foodies because of its dynamic, lively culinary culture. "Open Restaurants Tel Aviv," a culinary festival in the city, has once again pleased food lovers.


"We gonna make five dishes. I'm looking for volunteers as well. Volunteer?"

"I'll go."

"Right. Now we are going to make seabass tartare with red pepper juice and juzu juice. So I'm gonna make one and you'll gonna make one."

"I can try."

"And if you can just cut strips? Yes. Good. Well done!"

At Lima Nippo restaurant in the old city of Jaffa, Chef Chris Golding is teaching a few food lovers how to make Nikkei cuisine, the combination of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine which has become the latest culinary sensation worldwide.

For each dish, Golding invites a volunteer to make it together with him.

"Get people involved. Get them excited about what you are doing. I think cooking is a lot bit about confidence. Just help them to be more confident and hopefully they'll try some of the dishes at home. I myself really enjoy interacting with people, and hopefully they've learnt a few things from me, and they are teaching me a few things."

Daniella Amir is a university student majoring in industrial design, and is interested especially in food design. She says the workshop has inspired her a lot.

"Mostly about how you can take local products and make into something that doesn't have the local taste, which I think it's the most interesting thing here. Everything here is things that we have at home, but they make it completely different. I wrote everything down. It's definitely something I would love to try."

The workshop is part of the "Open Restaurants Tel Aviv" culinary festival, in which foodies can enter the kitchens of their favorite restaurants, cook with most intriguing chefs in the city, and taste their finest dishes.

Merav Oren is the founder of the festival.

"You can take a peek behind the scenes. You can meet the chefs, learn their secrets, talk to them and understand what it means to run a restaurant. People really want to join the fun. They are really the foodies. For them, the festival is a chance to really explore all kinds of restaurants from within."

this year, the festival has expanded with even more angles of culinary experiences.

"Food talk is lectures and discussions about culinary with designers, journalists and entrepreneurs. And culinary innovation is about food tech. We have 10 start-ups and 10 TED talks talking about innovation in food. The idea is to be a huge culinary festival that does all kinds of culinary experiences, not only taste."

The festival lasts from March 8 to 12, with over 80 restaurants joining the event.
