Who makes the best hummus in Jerusalem? Chefs, restaurateurs and cookbook authors Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi say that hummus, like many other things, is a divisive issue in Jerusalem. Cookbook author Naomi Duguid transports us to Burma with her latest book and chef Magnus Nilsson whisks us to his 12 seat restaurant Faviken in Northern Sweden where he grows the majority of the food he prepares on the surrounding 20,000 acre property. Food writer Charlotte Druckman tackles issues of gender in the kitchen and superstar chef Susan Feniger discusses how her globetrotting adventures transformed her palate. Veteran cookbook author Linda Lau Anusasananan returns to her roots with her new book on Hakka cooking; plus, Jonathan Gold dissects the biscuits at The Hart and the Hunter. At the market Laura Avery talks to cookbook author Amelia Saltsman about holiday cookies and Christopher Schubert about first of the season walnuts.
