Eating in Jerusalem


How do you narrate history?

You can examine regime change, influential leaders, and major events but, what can a cooking pot tell you about the history of a time or place.  Actually, quite a lot.  So, we have embarked on a culinary-historical journey to trace the story of Jerusalem from the days of the First Temple to the present through food discovered in archeological excavations, documented in books and currently cooked in different kitchens throughout the city.  How are we doing this?
