Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is proud to present a special screening In Search of Israeli Cuisine, followed by a Q & A with the film's director Roger Sherman. The film 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 draws on the many cultures that make up Israel today. The film documents celebrated chef/restaurateur Michael Solomonov (known for his landmark restaurant Zahav in Philadelphia) as he meets with Israeli cooks, chefs and writers to understand the country’s cuisine and its cultural complexities.
