If you want to enjoy the beauty and warmth of Galilee, and are in the mood for trying out a range of delightful delicacies, you might want to consider attending the third Kinneret Flavor Festival.
Organizers of the festival, which takes place during the next three weekends (from November 30 to December 15), say this is the best time of the year to visit the kibbutzim and communities around Lake Kinneret.
If you appreciate a good brunch, you might want to try the deal offered by the Scots Hotel in Tiberias.
Located right above Lake Kinneret, the modern hotel is a newly restored, 19th-century basalt building which once served as the first hospital in the region, and boasts a panoramic view that extends up to the Golan Heights.
It now houses a well-known restaurant, a Scottish pub with music shows during the weekends, a wine cellar, a swimming pool, and a visitors’ center.
The restaurant offers festival guests an-all-you-can-eat buffet brunch and a concert at the Scottish Church for NIS 125.
Besides the usual fare, the brunch includes a lamb pastry with pine nuts and sun-dried tomatoes, and the restaurant’s now-famous Kadaif (a sweet Turkish dish) filled with goat cheese.
The brunch, which is not kosher, is served during the festival’s three weekends on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The musical program is performed by the Israel Kibbutz Orchestra-The Kibbutz Ensemble at 12:30 on November 30 and December 14.
