Are you looking for new and creative ways to keep busy during this upcoming Passover holiday while staying home? How about arranging your own movie & recipe pairing by enjoying my Grandma Fritzie’s Passover Kibbeh Hamdah soup while sitting back with the mouth-watering documentary IN SEARCH OF ISRAELI CUISINE, now streaming on ChaiFlicks, dedicated to the best in Jewish entertainment!

When ChaiFlicks first contacted me about highlighting one of my recipes and pairing it with one of their online movies, I thought that it was a fun idea. And when they later emailed me that they had matched me up with the movie IN SEARCH OF ISRAELI CUISINE, I was even more pleasantly surprised!
Coincidentally, I happened to have met the movie’s director Roger Sherman in 2018 where we each received the Yitzhak Rabin Spice of Life Culinary Achievement Award organized by AFRMC (American Friends of Rabin Medical Center) to benefit emergency medical care in Israel. After a short talk about its production I was able to view Roger’s movie with the other guests and I found it surprisingly moving.
Funny enough the following year I was invited as a guest to the annual 2019 Spice of Life fundraiser where the famed author/chef/restaurateur of “Zahav” and star of Roger’s documentary — Michael Solomonov — was the honored guest for his contributions to Israeli cuisine!
I am honored to be paired with both of these great contributors to the world of Israeli food and Jewish culture. And I know that Grandma Fritzie is probably smiling right now too.
