In her spare time
Ilana is an enthusiastic golfer and enjoys hiking. She hiked the Wahiba Sands in Oman in 2015, parts of the Grand Canyon in Arizona the summer of 2017 and more recently completed the Fishriver Canyon in Namibia. After this last arduous experience, she vowed to go slack packing next!
Ilana and her son enjoy cooking and replicating recipes from all the countries they have visited. Her husband is an avid wine collector and is in charge of pairing the new recipes with a good wine out of his cellar.
