5 lemons

1 part peach schnapps for every 3 parts lemonade

1 bunch of mint (rinsed and dried)

1. To make a pitcher to share with friends, you should first make the simple syrup (heat 3/4 cup sugar with 1 cup water in a small saucepan until sugar is completely dissolved). A

2. Add the juice of 5 lemons and add both to a pitcher.

3. Add 3 to 4 cups (to taste) of cold water (therefore, 8 to 10 ounces peach schnapps).

TRAVEL FINDS… CARMEL MARKET, TEL AVIV

We recently spent a few days in Tel Aviv. It has a lot going on not least an impressive food scene that rivals any European city. The charming and fascinating Carmel Shuk sits firmly at the heart of this culinary culture.

image

image

We tried to experience as much of this amazing city as we could but found ourselves drawn back to the market and its surrounding restaurants time and time again!

image

image

The Carmel Shuk has an interesting history. Jewish settlers first happened across the site having fled Lenin’s Russia in the early 20th century. They quickly set up trade and the area was officially inaugurated as a market in 1920.

During the 1950s it rose to become the city’s home of local and fresh ingredients. And today the market attracts thousands of daily visitors including leading chefs from Israel and abroad who come to source and sample the unrivalled fresh produce.

The market runs from 8am until dark Sunday to Thursday, shuts early at 2pm on a Friday and is closed on Saturdays.
