Bringing Israel Home Episode 7: The Sabich Sandwich
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 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.
