A film is not a film without great characters and that all important ingredient, humour that engages an audience. Whether I agreed with their views on history, politics or hummus wasn't the point. I wanted my audiences to meet truly memorable people who stand for something, who are doing something, who had strong views and who make great hummus.

I encountered well known gastronomes like Claudia Roden and Janna Gur along with zealots, Jewish settlers, chefs for peace, biblical characters, political activists, chickpea farmers, novelists and Sheiks, for whom hummus is a near religious obsession.
