With travel to Israel curtailed for the moment, this series will bridge the gap by bringing Israel’s extraordinarily diverse and vibrant culinary landscape into people’s homes via weekly interviews with food and cultural figures in Israel, cooking both new and signature recipes live in his home kitchen, and through live conversation with viewers.

The first part of each episode is pre-recorded interviews with guests in Israel who bring the ultimate melting pot of Israeli cuisine to life by sharing their family stories and food traditions with Chef Solomonov and all of you. The second part of each episode comes to you live from Solomonov’s home kitchen where he will prepare dishes based on the theme of the episode, and take questions live from viewers. Recipes will be available to viewers in advance through Jewishfoodsociety.org.  

Please check back for a description of this week's episode.
