In Search of Israeli Cuisine
The San Diego Jewish Film Festival presented by the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center launchs the 27th season underwriter kickoff party and the San Diego premiere screening.
In a gastronomical expedition, celebrity Michael Solomonov, a James Beard Award winning chef and co-owner of acclaimed Zahav in Philadelphia, zigzags Israel to savor a food revolution rooted in centuries-old tradition. Israel’s food scene is among the most dynamic in the world, extending beyond falafel and hummus to include tasty ethnic and regional specialties. The filmmakers follow Solomonov into “hot” restaurants, home kitchens, wineries, street vendors, and markets.
