IN SEARCH OF ISRAELI CUISINE


Wednesday, November 22 at 7:30 pm
Members $11 | Public $16 | Includes reception with Israeli cuisine

A portrait of the Israeli people told through food that puts a face on the culture of Israel, profiling chefs, home cooks, vintners, and cheese-makers drawn from the more than one hundred cultures that make up Israel today – Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze. A rich and human story of the people emerges.

The Israel-born, award-winning chef of Zahav, Michael Solomonov, offers up a tour of 70 plus diverse cultures of Israel through food. Over the past 30 years, Israel has gone from having no fine food to a food scene that is world renowned. Solomonov visits the vibrant restaurants of Tel Aviv, must-experience Jerusalem destinations and organic kitchens off the beaten track, sampling from remarkable food traditions as diverse as Moroccan, Persian, Lebanese, French, Italian and Russian.
