The Israel chapter of the Italian Academy of Cuisine (Accademia Italiana della Cucina) hosted its bi-monthly dinner and symposium last week at the Tel Aviv restaurant La Repubblica di Ronimotti. The dinner for 29 guests was organized by Dr. Cinzia Klein, Delegate of the Academy in Israel; Ms. Sabrina G. Fadlun, Vice Delegate of the Academy in Israel; and Mr. Massimo Lomonaco, bureau chief of Ansa, the Italian Press Agency, also a member of the  Academy.

A fundamentally agricultural holiday, Shavuot commemorates the custom of bringing offerings to the Holy Temple from the first fruits of the harvest and the first animals born to the flocks.

Shavuot, the Holiday of Weeks, is one of the three pilgrimage holidays, along with Pesach and Sukkot. These are the holidays on which the whole Jewish people would come to Jerusalem​ in ancient times, when the Holy Temple was there, and would offer animal and grain sacrifices.

 International Women's Day was celebrated this year in the MAUSNER fashion house with a display of respect, love and appreciation for Israeli women.

 
"This year we are proud to launch the 2017 summer collection synchronized with International Women's Day, and for a good reason" remarked Rivka Mausner, the principal designer and the co-owner. "We praise the achievements of brave women throughout history, and choose to indicate in this manner our contribution to the development of women’s fashion and implementation of women’s style, especially with the launching of the 2017 summer collection.

On the eve of the Shavuot holiday, the Society for the Promotion of Tourism in Herzliya, in conjunction with the Grape Man, is hosting the White Summer White Wine Festival at the Herzliya Marina. The largest white wine festival in Israel will take place on the plaza of the marina on Wednesday and Thursday, May 24-25, 2017.

 

 

 

Socca Market in Tel Aviv has brought a new concept in dining to its unique venue for weddings, parties and major events. Instead of the standard fixed menu and waiter service, guests are invited to make the rounds of food stalls, each one featuring cuisine from different corners of the globe.

 

 

Drawing its inspiration from London’s Borough Market, New York’s Chelsea Market and Barcelona’s La Boqueria -- and more recently, Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market and Shuk Tzafon -- Socca Market comprises stalls that serve food representing the following cuisines:

 

 

Israeli (Mediterranean) - hummus, tehina, lamb kabab, skewers of shishlik and sabih

Italian -  pastas, focaccias, antipasti (grilled vegetables) and bruschettas

Greek - souvlaki, dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) Greek salad, gyros, fried red mullet

Asian - dim sum dumplings, stir-fried noodles, bao sandwiches, Asian cabbage salad  

American - fresh grilled hamburgers from prime beef, coleslaw, French fries

 

 

 

 

 

A delicious spread of desserts is served, featuring brownies with hot fudge sauce, chocolate chip cookies, hot apple crumble with pareve vanilla ice cream, meringues with berry sauce, lemon meringue tarts, and assorted pastries.

 

 

There is a full bar serving cocktails, sangria, and soft drinks, and a separate bar for wines.

 

 

Socca Market, which is certified kosher, is located in a trendy district of lofts and studios in south Tel Aviv.
