Israeli chefs Guy Marom and Nir Margalith will tantalize Tidewater taste buds with their passion for Middle Eastern cuisine at two separate events.

At Israel Fest, the community celebration of Israel’s Independence Day, Marom and Margalith’s gourmet goodies will provide fresh, authentic Israeli food, served alongside generous food offerings of local synagogues.

Two days later at a hands-on cooking demonstration, Marom and Margalith will represent their unique catering company, Puzzle Israel. Tickets for this event are $41 or $36 for JCC members; $72 for couples or $60 for JCC members.

Born in the hilly region of the Lower Galilee, they both share fond memories of hiking, horseback riding, and exploring the surrounding landscapes. Combining their love of cooking, nature, and travel, Marom and Margalith founded the travel company, Puzzle Israel Tour Company, which includes their catering enterprise.

Offering fresh perspectives on Israel, they design personalized eco-travel tours, which unite the rich food cultures of a region with unique outdoor itineraries.

Marom and Margalith shared a small sample of their Israeli food at Tidewater’s 2014 Israel Fest. They are the closing event of the 2016-17 Israel Today series, which offers cultural and educational programs that highlight the diversity of talent and people of Israel.

Israel Fest, presented by the Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Simon Family JCC and community partners, as part of the Israel Today series, is free and open to the public.
