About me: Iris Saraf-Reinharts
Ever since I remember myself, I have been fascinated with people. I love meeting and befriending them, I love hearing their hopes and dreams, their views of life.
In my travels I have met some remarkable people, whose memory I carry in my heart for many years. I have also met many tourists who came to Israel for a short vacation, and discovered here their best friend.
As a restaurant manager I have met hundreds, even thousands of diners. It was a pleasure getting to know so many people, but it was always too short, never enough.
This is why I have decided to open my house to you - So that we can really meet and talk and get to know each other.
When travelling the world, I fell in love with the Mediterranean cuisines of Italy,
Spain and France.
Jerusalem revealed to me the secrets of the various ethnicities which make up Israel.
All these are expressed in my food.
These many loves led me to initiate
From the moment I opened the door to my house to tourists, I found that people love the interpersonal encounter as much as I do. So it was easy for me to offer adventurous tourists an introduction to more parts of my world: the markets, the songs, all the cooking, the wine - all these have become part of AMECHAYE and in all these activities I am happy to meet real people and show them the real Israel.
When you come to Israel, remember - your new friend is waiting for you!
A little about me:A lecture about wine (albeit in Hebrew ...)
A short film about Israeli culinary from the site: Susan loves Israel. My part starts at 1:12.
Many thanks to my brother Yaron, who taught me how to build this website and believed in me and Amechaye from the get go.
Thanks to my cousin, Danit Ron - Bornstein, who helped me with her artistic eye and the English translation.
And last but not least, to my family that supports and gives me wings to fly as high as my dreams.
Thank you all for your help and your support.
