WINNER – Elysia Lichtine! Thanks to everyone who participated!
The talented and well-known Philadelphia chef Michael Solomonov (Zahav and Dizengoff, to name my 2 favorites) has a movie coming out. Yes, you read it, a movie about food, about the "culinary revolution" in Israel that's been influencing menus all around the world. The film isn't out yet, but it's been screening all around the country in festivals since January and it's coming to Philadelphia SOON! The Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival is bringing it to the Gershman Y on Monday, March 28 and I'm here to give away 2 FREE TICKETS!
"In what is clearly a labor of love, Solomonov travels the length and breadth of Israel, meeting with an eclectic group of professional and amateur chefs, cheese makers, vintners, farmers, and fisherman, who draw on their own ethnic heritage as they add to the ever-growing lexicon of Israeli cuisine."
