Thursday, January 13, 2022 11 Sh'vat 5782

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM


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 more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today; Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze, a rich, 
complex and human story emerges.

The chef/guide of In Search of Israeli Cuisine is Michael Solomonov, the James Beard award winning chef/owner of Zahav, and a number of other restaurants in Philadelphia. Mike enters peoples’ lives and their kitchens to discuss their roots, inspirations, what their grandmothers cooked, how they’re preserving traditions and updating recipes with global influences.  

oin us for an evening of learning more about Israeli cuisine and why Israel is often called a “salad bowl” as compared to a “melting pot”.  In celebration of Tu B’Shevat, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the shivat minim (7 Species) that are considered to most represent Israel, and to create a special recipe in which one of those species is the star! We kindly ask participants to watch In Search of Israeli Cuisine in advance.
