Celebrate the Best in Local Flavors During Yom Asif
During Yom Asif, we’re examining local food through panels, tastings, and more. Join us at Cafe Asif to get a taste of it all. The one-day special menu, available 12:00-20:00, will feature cocktails made with herbs from Asif’s rooftop farm, olive oils from across the country, breads made with local and little-known heritage wheat varieties, vegetables from Ginat Ha’Etz, local vanilla from startup Vanilla Vida, and more.
Plus, stop by a stand offering 20 varieties of citrus from the Volcani Institute that go far beyond the Jaffa orange.
