In Search of Israeli Cuisine is a portrait of the Israeli people told through food. It puts a literal face on the culture of Israel. Profiling chefs, home cooks, farmers, vintners and cheese makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today – Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian and Druze.  A rich, complex and human story emerges. Think Israeli cuisine is only falafel and hummus, or typical Jewish food like brisket and blintzes? As Award Winning Chef, Michael Solomonov, discovers, the cultural complexity is much deeper than most people understand. Indeed, the hummus is wonderful - but you'd have to search to find brisket.
