In Search of Israeli Cuisine


Tue, 10/26/2021 - 6:30pm


Film Screening

From Point of View Magazine:

“What does Israeli cuisine taste like?” asks Philadelphia chef Michael Solomonov. The title of this new doc by Roger Sherman is on point as Solomonov returns to the land of his birth in search of Israeli cuisine. The chef acts as our guide throughout the film and he samples a variety of flavours from different regions in an effort to define a national cuisine. The flavour of Israeli cooking isn’t as easy to pin down as the buttery richness of French food, the tomatoey goodness of Italian cooking, or the fatty gluttonousness of American eats, but its indefinable complexity may be its strength. This foodie doc finds a cultural palette that is varied and multifarious as the land that creates it."
