Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel - the first Muslim Arab to win Israel's MasterChef - is on a quest to make social change through food. And so, she founded the A-Sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup), and qatayef (a dessert typically eaten during Ramadan). A film about hope, synergy and exotic fare, Breaking Bread illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than her religion; on the public, rather than the politicians.
A celebration of the region's diverse cuisines and people, offering a mouth-watering taste of rich culinary traditions that will leave you wanting more.
Cast: Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel, Shlomi Meir, Ali Khattib
Director: Beth Elise Hawk
