Jewish Quarter Tour with Market Visit and Cooking Class


Come and enjoy a day like no other and experience traditional Czech and Jewish cuisine. See how grandmothers for years would prepare meals for their families just as they did in the shtetl (Jewish market town). You'll have the unique opportunity to try some of the most authentic and delicious meals, take part in the cooking process and learn about the entire process, from buying the ingredients to the final tasting of the dishes.

Once we've finished cooking and eating together, your driver and guide will take you to the Jewish Quarter for a tour. Here you will discover the treasures of the ancient Jewish Quarter, including the interiors of four famous synagogues and the exterior of the oldest synagogue north of the Alps, the Old-New Synagogue, still in use today.

Please note: Sunday is not optimal for this tour due to the market being closed.

Itinerary

The day will begin at around 8:30 a. m. when your guide and driver will pick you up from your location in a private car and bring you to the local farmers' market. Here you'll meet the professional chef and receive an authentic shopping experience where you will buy the ingredients to make a meal of your choice. You'll feel like a local shopping in the 19th century market!

With your chef, you'll prepare a three-course meal and learn interesting facts about Jewish and Czech cuisine while cooking. Finally, you'll conclude by dining together and tasting your finished meals, followed by your private driver and guide taking you to the Jewish quarter for a 3-hour historical tour. View the interiors of four famous synagogues, exterior of the Old-New Synagogue and take a walk through the Old Jewish Cemetery and see the Burial Brotherhood Guild
