Warning: This episode will make you hungry! JewishBoston, Jewish Arts Collaborative and four celebrated Boston chefs teamed up for a live podcast recording about the history and evolution of Israeli food.
Live from a packed but cozy Mamaleh’s Delicatessen after hours comes a fascinating discussion about the creation of Taste of Israel Restaurant Week, how raisins do not belong in kugel (prove us wrong!), exciting food trends from Israel and the secret to baking Israel-level pita in Greater Boston.
- Michael Leviton, eight-time James Beard Foundation Award nominee, chair of Taste of Israel Restaurant Week and co-founder of Craigie Burger
- Rachel Sundet, owner and pastry chef at Mamaleh’s Delicatessen
- Avi Shemtov, owner and chef at The Chubby Chickpea and Simcha
- Ilan Barniv, owner and chef at BONAPITA Mediterranean Bakery & Grill
This live recording was part of Taste of Israel Restaurant Week 2020.
