Kitchens are more than just a place for preparing and consuming food. They are the heart of the home, and the restaurant, a place of nourishment, sharing and enjoyment for the body and soul.


Heimishe Essen



Kitchens, foods and flavours are embedded in our memories; the food we ate as children, the many tastes of adulthood, the tantalising prospect of recipes from a new cookbook, or eating at the latest restaurant.

I visited many Middle East kitchens, to film Make Hummus Not War, and tasted countless variations of the basic hummus recipe. I was welcomed in all these kitchens, whether, Jewish, Muslim or Christian, with warmth and hospitality.


Soucci




Make Hummus Not War is a call to action, an acknowledgement of our common humanity - our basic need to eat and enjoy life, a hope for peace.
