Having won the James Beard award for embracing unique and authentic flavors, Israeli-American Michael Solomonov returns to his homeland to discover his culinary heritage. From Tel Aviv’s most exclusive eateries, to street bazaars, to simmering pots in family kitchens, this is the story behind the ingredients that Israel produces using both ancient farming techniques and high-tech innovations.

Combining a procession of mouthwatering dishes and interviews with chefs, home cooks and farmers of all backgrounds, Oscar-nominated documentarian Roger Sherman presents a diverse portrait of the Israeli people told through the very personal language of food.
