In Search of Israeli Cuisine
“From when we’re born to when we die, we have a little bit of dirt in our mouth, which is the dirt of where we came from. And if we could translate that taste to what we’re making in the kitchen, that would be quite spectacular!”
A mouthwatering documentary from acclaimed documentarian, Roger Sherman, In Search of Israeli Cuisine presents a portrait of the Israeli people through the food they eat and create. Celebrity chef-restaurateur Michael Solomonov embarks on a gastronomical mission; zigzagging across Israel to savor a food revolution rooted in centuries-old tradition. Profiling the chefs, home cooks and gourmands, this documentary stitches together a portrait of a diverse and multicultural society that composes the fabric of Israel… and the traditions and tastes that define and unite them.
