Israeli Chef Ruth Rousso

Great press lunch today at Crossroads on Melrose in Los Angeles, the renowned plant-based Mediterranean restaurant of Israeli-born chef Tal Ronnen where I and several other food and travel journalists had the great pleasure of meeting Ruth Rousso (center). Chef Rousso is a well-known food expert in Israel, where she hosts a food TV show, owns her own trendy cold-pressed juice company (called “Jusso”), writes a regular food column, and is a former guest judge on Iron Chef Israel and Game of Chefs (a popular culinary reality TV show).  Chef Rousso is also one of the stars of a new documentary on Israeli food produced by Roger Sherman called "In Search of Israeli Cuisine," which will air on PBS nationwide next year (and is currently touring the film festival circuit, to great acclaim).
