Bringing Israel Home Episode 3: The Port City of Akko
Hosted By: Bringing Israel Home
Join award-winning chef Michael Solomonov for his new digital series, “Bringing Israel Home.” Each Wednesday evening for 16 weeks, Chef Solomonov will bring 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.
Watch the show each week to experience Israeli cuisine like you’ve never seen it before and cook a unique, new Israeli-inspired recipe along with this James Beard award-winning chef, right from your own kitchen.
Episode 3 Guide:
Mike interviews chef Osama Dalal, whose family has lived in Akko for more than 300 years, to talk about pluralism and how Jews and Arabs live side-by-side. An ambassador of authenticity, Osama demonstrates how Ottoman influences flavor the food of Akko, more than elsewhere in Israel. Mike also speaks with Avihai Tsabari, who sheds further light on the history of the historic port city.
Recipes to make along with Mike:
- Fish Schnitzel with Kataifi Crust, Preserved Lemons and Capers
