World Premiere

In Search of Israeli Cuisine

Directed by Roger Sherman

US | 120 minutes | 2016

English, Hebrew, Arabic with English subtitles

Two-time Academy Award nominee Roger Sherman and James Beard Award winning chef Michael Solomonov explore the richness of Israeli cuisine through this tantalizing, fascinating, and visually beautiful culinary adventure that is the first of its kind. Profiling some of the finest chefs, farmers, vintners, and cheese makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today, a rich, complex and human story emerges that puts a literal face on Israel’s thirty-year-old culinary scene. Through engrossing cooking sights from the trendiest restaurants to home kitchens and local farms, we see Israelis celebrate their cultural heritage by taking traditional family foods, handed down over generations, and transforming these recipes in new and modern ways while still retaining their warmth and hospitality.
