About The Film

Fans of Anthony Bourdain and food shows will enjoy this delicious documentary about what happens when chefs from different regions in Israel come together to cook and learn from one another. Determined to spark social change through food, Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel, the first Muslim Arab to win Israel's Master Chef Television competition, founded the A-sham Arabic Food Festival in Haifa. There, Jewish and Arab chefs are paired and collaborate to transform traditional recipes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup) and qatayef (a dessert typically served during Ramadan) into exotic fusion cuisine. The film offers a message of hope, as the chefs discover that there is no room for politics in the kitchen.
