In Search of Israeli Cuisine is a portrait of the Israeli people told through the very personal language of food. This feature length documentary puts a face on the culture of Israel, profiling chefs, home cooks, vintners, and cheese-makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up today’s Israel. Award-winning filmmaker Roger Sherman tells an intimate, authentic, and witty story of “one of the most dynamic food cultures in the world.” Sherman enlists Israeli-born, Philadelphia-raised celebrity chef-restaurateur Michael Solomonov to be his on-camera seeker of culinary wisdom and truth. It’s a search that goes from exclusive eateries in Tel Aviv to street bazaars and, inevitably, to the steaming pots of family kitchens.

In Search of Israeli Cuisine is a mouthwatering exploration, a gorgeous travelogue, and a must-see San Diego premiere.
