The menu changes seasonally, in keeping with the cycle of life in the Galilee. In the winter and spring, your ingredients will include many wild greens, picked fresh from the fields. During the late spring and through the summer, frikki, or smoked green wheat, is on the menu. Once you have finished preparing the delicacies, the group will sit down to enjoy the feast with the host.
