WHERE TO EAT

Al Tanur
Reina Junction, Upper Nazareth (972/046/014-948). Owned by the family behind Nazareth's El Babour, an old spice market and mill, this casual Arab restaurant offers one of the many fine meals in the region's best dining town. Try the stuffed lamb neck over freekeh, roasted green wheat.

Goats with the Wind Farm
Har Hashabi, Yodfat (972/505/327-387). Dalia and Amnon Zaldstein run this dairy and restaurant in the hills of the Lower Galilee. The Eden-like setting features cushion seating under carob trees for a rustic, seasonal meal that includes the farm's organic goat cheese.
