Roger Sherman had never dreamed about making a film on Israel. Until a few years ago, the award-winning director and producer had never even considered traveling here.
But fast-forward five years and Sherman is finally putting the finishing touches – after years of work – on the story of Israel’s development as a culinary destination. After a successful kickstarter campaign, he is currently in the editing process of his two-hour documentary The Search for Israeli Cuisine, which explores the dozens of unique cultures that make up the local food scene.
“I was just amazed by what I found” on my first trip to Israel, Sherman told The Jerusalem Post by phone from his New York studio.
