Tasting the Limits

Roundtable |

A minefield divides maftoul from ptitim (farfel). Is there such a thing as Israeli cuisine, or is it a form of culinary plagiarism? How is local cuisine defined in terms of raw materials and cooking techniques? This session will open a Pandora’s box and contemplate points of controversy and conversation around culinary authenticity.
