The lectures are presented by Gil Hovav, a food journalist, TV personality and cookbook author, and Nir Zook, a celebrity chef, and are hosted by cultural centre Beit Avi Chai at The First Station, Jerusalem’s old railway station.

Hovav and Zook are interviewed about the series in Tablet magazine.
