USA/Israel | Documentary/Food
This delightful (and delicious) documentary follows a group of chefs who take part in a unique food festival.
Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel – the first Muslim Arab to win Israel’s MasterChef – is on a quest to make social change through food. And so, she founded the A-sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on exotic dishes like kishek (a Syrian yoghurt soup), and qatayef (a dessert typically served during Ramadan). A film about hope, synergy and mouthwatering fare.
