Back by popular demand from our 25th SVJFF Film Festival, we invite you to come and enjoy the award-winning movie "In Search
of Israeli Cuisine" and free food tasting and products of local vendors, promoting organic choices, sustainability, environmentalism and food justice.
"In Search of Israeli Cuisine" is a portrait of the Israeli people told through food. Profiling chefs, home cooks, farmers, vintners, and cheese makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today — Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze — a rich, complex and human story emerges. Having won the James Beard award for embracing these authentic flavors, Israeli-American chef Michael Solomonov returns to his homeland to discover his culinary heritage anew. Mike enters peoples' lives, and their kitchens, and discusses their roots, inspirations, what their grandmothers cooked, how they're preserving traditions and updating recipes with global influences.
