Israeli Cuisine

israeli cuisine highlight

Israel may have been founded in 1948, but it took almost 40 more years for a distinctive Israeli cuisine to emerge. Join us for a multi-sensory experience as our special guest chefs explore the scope of Israeli cuisine, define its unique characteristics and follow the nascent history of Israeli food—from its roots to its current position as one of the most sought after cuisines in the United States.

Join guest chefs Joan Nathan, Chef Lior Lev Sercarz and Chef Michael Solomonov. The evening will be moderated by documentary filmmaker Roger Sherman, winner of an Emmy, a Peabody and two Academy Award nominations and director of the upcoming PBS series The Search for Israeli Cuisine—A Portrait of the Israeli People Told Through Food, airing in Spring 2015.

Join us for a lively discussion, personal stories, clips from the upcoming PBS series, insights from our guests and of course, tasting to follow.

Please note: General admission seating is unreserved for this event.  It is recommended that you arrive early to select your seat.

Tickets are non-refundable.
