A Taste of Israel: A CommUnity Conversation with Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook

2017 James Beard Foundation “Outstanding Chef” Michael Solomonov and James Beard Award winning restaurateur Steve Cook put Israeli food on the American culinary map. As they launch their brand-new cookbook, Israeli Soul, they’ll join us for a savory conversation moderated by Rabbi Angela Buchdahl about their path to success, how they choose to give back, and, of course, how they landed on the perfect hummus recipe.
