Event description

Description

Following on their wildly successful Zahav, Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook embrace the informal, varied, boisterous, and simple food of a nation in ISRAELI SOUL: Easy, Essential, Delicious.


Timed for the anniversary of a country that will be just 70 years old, the book not only shows how the food has shaped the soul of Israel but also brings that deliciousness home to the American kitchen. Within these pages, readers will find meals in the hand like falafel; the juicy, grilled, and roasted spice-rubbed meats called shawarma; a wealth of chopped salads; a flotilla of kebabs; crispy chicken schnitzel; flatbreads and filled breads; pastries; ice creams; fruit-and herb-infused seltzers; and tehina shakes.

Admission includes wine and a copy of Israeli Soul.



MICHAEL SOLOMONOV

Michael Solomonov is the executive chef and co-owner of Philadelphia’s pioneering Israeli restaurant, Zahav. He is the 2011 James Beard Award winner for “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic”, a 2016 James Beard Award winner for “Best International Cookbook” and “Book of the Year” for his and business partner/co-author Steven Cook’s first cookbook, Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking, and the 2017 James Beard Award's “Outstanding Chef.” In 2018, Zahav was recognized by Food & Wine as one of "The 40 Most Important Restaurants of the Past 40 Years". In additions to his duties at Zahav, Chef Solomonov co-owns Philadelphia's Federal Donuts, Dizengoff, Abe Fisher, Goldie, and the philanthropic The Rooster, which donates 100% of its profits to Broad Street Ministry Hospitality Collaborative that provides meals and essential services to individuals experiencing homelessness and hunger in Philadelphia. In 2017, Solomonov and the Israel Ministry of Tourism (IMOT) created a partnership to champion Israel’s extraordinarily diverse and vibrant culinary landscape.

STEVEN COOK
One of the country's top restaurateurs and the 2016 James Beard Award winner for "Best International Cookbook” and "Book of the Year" for his and business partner Chef Michael Solomonov's first cookbook, Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking, Steven Cook is the co-owner of CookNSolo Restaurants, home to some of Philadelphia’s most distinctive culinary concepts. His culinary mark began with Zahav, the pioneering Israeli restaurant that consistently puts the diverse cuisine of Israel on the Map. In 2018, Zahav was recognized by Food & Wine as one of "The 40 Most Important Restaurants of the Past 40 Years". In addition to Zahav, Cook co-owns Federal Donuts, Abe Fisher, Dizengoff, Goldie, and the philanthropic diner-style Jewish deli, The Rooster, which donates 100% of its profits to their non-profit partner, Broad Street Hospitality Collaborative. Prior to founding CookNSolo, Cook left his job as an investment banker in New York to return to Philadelphia and pursue a career as a hospitality entrepreneur.
