IN SEARCH OF ISRAELI CUISINE
More On The Film: Is there truly such a thing as Israeli cuisine? Michael Solomonov, the James Beard award-winning chef and restaurateur behind top Philadelphia dining establishments Zahav, Abe Fisher, Dizengoff, Federal Donuts, and Percy Street Barbecue, makes it his mission to find out. In what is clearly a labor of love, Solomonov travels the length and breadth of Israel, meeting with an eclectic group of professional and amateur chefs, cheese makers, vintners, farmers, and fisherman, who draw on their own ethnic heritage as they add to the ever-growing lexicon of Israeli cuisine. As Solomonov immerses himself in the local flavors of the 100+ cultures that make up the Israeli people, Oscar-nominated documentarian Roger Sherman offers a behind-the-scenes look at a dynamic Israeli food scene rooted in centuries-old tradition.
