Focus on the Bible’s 7 ‘super’ foods

Kosher chefs Jamie Geller and Tom Franz team up at the City of David

Joy of Kosher cookbook writer Jamie Geller has been busy chronicling the “seven super foods of the Bible” — the seven species — along with Israel’s MasterChef winner, Tom Franz.

The two paired up at Jerusalem’s City of David. Geller first filmed an episode examining the archaeological finds at the Jerusalem site, which premiered last week on her Kosher Media Network.

The second episode, released Monday, featured a cooking show at the City of David with Franz, a German-born lawyer who moved to Israel, converted to Judaism and became a religious, kosher home chef, now with his own cookbook.

Franz prepared a flat bread and smoked salmon Waldorf salad with several ingredients from the seven species, including grapes and silan (date honey) for Monday’s episode.

Geller approved.

The third and final episode, released Wednesday, includes Franz’s preparation of yogurt and silan pancakes with a seven species fruit salad.
