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 7 Guide:

Mike speaks with Naama Shefi, founder of Jewish Food Society, an organization that works to preserve, celebrate, and revitalize Jewish cuisine. Mike also speaks with Tami Shem Tov, whose father shares a name with the national dish of Israel, Sabich. The dish is made of fried eggplant, hard boiled egg, tahini, chopped salad, pickles and amba, which first came onto the scene in modern pita sandwich-form by an Iraqi immigrant selling his sabich to bus drivers at a kiosk at the end of a bus line in the 1980s.

Recipes to make along with Mike:

  • Sabich
  • T’bit
