BREAKING BREAD follows Arab and Jewish chefs in Haifa, Israel as they collaborate to produce the A-Sham Arabic Food Festival, sharing the recipes, techniques, stories, and traditions that ultimately unite the Levant. Connected through a shared love of food, the chefs unite to celebrate their cultures and the food of their region, free from political and religious boundaries. BREAKING BREAD offers a mouth-watering taste of unifying foodways that will leave you wanting more.
