Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook in Israel
Is this the year you take the trip of a lifetime? If you’ve got an extra $7,829 lying around and a hankering for hummus, then block off June 26- July 5 for what has to be an unforgettable trip to Israel with Zahav chef Michael Solomonov.
The trip is equal parts sightseeing and culinary tour, with visits to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea interspersed with excursions to try cheese aged in 2,000 year old Israeli caves and sardines fresh from the sea in Akko.
Airfare is included in the price, and the flights leave from and return to Philly. You can also book your own flights and just pay for the land portion of the trip if you'd rather, which will cost $6,054 per person.

Executive chef of Zahav, Michael Solomonov
Zahav, Michael Solomonov’s flagship restaurant famous for its authentic Israeli cuisine, is becoming a “Lamb Shack” from February 6-28.
The lamb, which is “an entire bone-in Colorado shoulder braised with pomegranate juice and chickpeas into a melting mountain of meat like you’ve never experienced,” has become something of a cult favorite for Philly diners and critics, but has historically only been an option for parties of nine or more due to the several day preparation process it requires.
In response to the public demand for lamb, Solomonov has decided to offer only his famous pomegranate lamb for the month of February (and a vegetarian option for the less carnivorous.) The Lamb Shack menu is $36 per person, and includes hummus and tehina, house baked pita, salatim, and "whomping hunks" of pomegranate lamb.
Also, if getting to try some of the most sought after lamb in Philadelphia isn't enough for you, Zahav is inviting guests to BYO for the entire month of February at no additional charge.
