From Nazareth to Bethlehem: the backpackers' culinary journey
The journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem is approximately 100km - it takes 2hrs by car along a boring motorway or 8 - 10 days by foot. All routes pass through small Bedouin villages and ancient towns where dishes, cooking methods, cookware and ingredients have stayed much the same as they were back in Biblical times.
This is an evening of Festive celebration, marking one of the most magical astronomical points of the year, the mid-winter solstice. It is based around a Levant-style feast, eating many of the dishes that are ingrained in this tradition.
Arrive at Owl Lodge for 7.00pm - 7.20pm
Dinner commences 7.45pm - a three-course dinner at long communal tables in the Dutch barn, around the central fire pit.
