“If hummus and falafel are the only things that come to mind when you think about Israeli food, then this fascinating documentary is a must-see. Guided by Michael Solomonov, the Israel-born, Philadelphia-based, award-winning chef behind (hit Philadelphia restaurant) Zahav, we explore the 70+ diverse cultures of Israel through food. Solomonov visits the vibrant restaurants of Tel Aviv, must-experience Jerusalem destinations and kitchens off the beaten track. He samples food traditions as diverse as Moroccan, Persian, Lebanese, French, Italian and Russian and talks to a variety of chefs–Jewish, Arab, Christian and Druze; kosher and non-kosher, secular and religious–and asks them about their traditions and if there is such a thing.”—Palm Springs Film Festival.
