Kosher traveling

Since you asked…

The company that my husband and I guide for is Shai Bar Ilan Geographical tours– website:

This company has been doing kosher tours all over the world for about 30 years and has developed all sorts of clever ways of dealing with our kosher food needs. Our travelers are served freshly prepared, strictly kosher meals everywhere we take them. I won’t go into details, but what I will say is that all food is prepared by professional chefs and by us (the guides) in and with utensils that belong to us and there is always a guide supervising and assisting the cooking. When we travel to places like China and Vietnam, our people are able to eat food prepared in the manner that local food is prepared. In China, we have wonderful vegetables not commonly eaten in other places. Ask my granddaughter about the lotus we had one evening in Beijing! In Vietnam and Cambodia, in addition to all of the delicious food we have for our main courses, we are able to eat the most delicious pineapple I have ever tasted. Bananas too are plentiful. So in addition to see, hearing, and experiencing a different culture and landscape, we actually eat well too!

  1. Would we be able to get vegan, gluten free, soy free food? My kids and I have celiac disease and are all allergic to dairy and soy. I”m allergic to eggs and we’re all vegan. I want to our family to tour the far east but don’t want to have to worry about food. Eating in China was a nightmare when we visited there two years ago. We lived on fruit and all lost a lot of weight.

  2. Actually, because we do all of our own cooking, we are able to accommodate special dietary needs. The only gluten would be in the bread– and it is possible to bring bread with you if you need it. We rarely use soy and never use dairy products in our cooking. We supply lots of fruits and lots of both cooked and fresh vegetables. We also eat rice and potatoes normally. When we have fish or meat with our meal, it is a separate dish and not mixed with the other foods. If we have people with special dietary needs, we make sure to accommodate them.

  3. This is good to know. thank you. Now I know I have another option for when we plan our travel for the next few years
