The film’s chef/guide is Michael Solomonov, a James Beard Award winning chef and co-owner of acclaimed Zahav in Philadelphia.
Mike was born in Israel and grew up in Pittsburgh and is inspired by the flavors and aromas from his Sephardic grandmother’s kitchen. The filmmakers follow Mike into hot restaurants and home kitchens, wineries and cheese makers, he eats street food and visits markets. All over the country, he discusses traditions, ingredients, the origins, and the future of Israeli Cuisine, with a nod to the many Sephardic culinary tastes. This is a delicious film!
