Winter Cooking Workshop, Market Tour & Meal at Beit Elfarasha in Old Akko

Beit Elfarasha opened in December 2020 in a newly renovated Ottoman building, which has remnants from the Crusader period. It is situated in a picturesque, authentic alley in heart of the Old City of Akko, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea – and just a minute walk from the original ancient sea wall. 



Cathy Raff, who has been involved in the Old City since 2009, has fulfilled a lifelong dream of establishing a center where local women would be able to share the love for their native cuisine with guests from Israel and abroad. Her vision was to enable direct conversations around a shared passion for food and culture, enabling visitors to be more than tourists for the day, as they interact with the people who inhabit the city, which makes it so special.

The ground floor includes a state-of-the-art kitchen where workshops are held, plus a living room for hosting cultural events. The first floor has two, spacious suites, while the top floor offers a rooftop, sea-view terrace – a place to hang out and enjoy the air and atmosphere of this ancient Mediterranean city.

This newly restored, 200+ year old building, equipped with the most modern infrastructure, combines supreme attention to detail in every suite, along with a cozy inviting sitting area in the lobby, to meet, learn and interact with the locals.  All this makes the Beit Elfarasha Experience a welcome addition to the many charms the City of Akko has to offer.
