Pinsteps. Basher Fromajery Mahane Yehuda, Jerusalem

The market of Mahane Yehuda or only “the market” has many stories, and Basher Fromagerie is the story of Cinderella. Since 1956, two generations of the Eli Basher family have been running a small restaurant on Makhne Yehuda, but Eli decided to make another career. During a trip to France, he fell in love with the European cheese culture. Although Eli grew up in traditional Jerusalem cuisine, he decided to take a chance and “bring the taste of Paris” to the very heart of the Jerusalem market. Basher Fromagerie is now well known outside of Mahne Yehuda and is one of the best cheese shops in the country. Each month, Ely travels to Rungis, a huge wholesale market in the suburbs of Paris, to replenish her empire with new varieties from Europe. Israeli dairies are also represented in the store. In addition to cheese, the store offers a variety of wines, imported beer, unique sauces and seasonings, herring, Italian kinds of pasta, particular types of bread, and other high-quality delicacies.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

The city of King David impresses with its antiquity and authenticity. The Jerusalem archaeological park - Davidson Center shows the buildings of the vicinity of the Second Jerusalem Temple, its streets, and even shops of artisans. We will visit the Wailing Wall. We will walk along the southern walls of the old city to the Sultan's Pool and climb a little up the slope to the old windmill in the first suburb built behind the city walls. From the quarter of Moses Montefiori, we will approach the legendary King David Hotel and stop for a rest in Independence Park. At the end of the day, we will take a leisurely walk and eat at the most colorful, tasty, and famous city market - Mahane Yehuda.
