James Beard Award-winning Netflix star Phil Rosenthal will speak at a one-time screening of his hit show "Somebody Feed Phil," on April 19 at 5 p.m. at The Cameo Cinema, 1340 Main St., in St. Helena.
The episode of the show being shown is the one filmed in Tel Aviv, Israel. Rosenthal will answer questions after the screening. Napa Valley-based photographer Steven Rothfeld will be at the event to sign copies of his new book "Israel Eats." The event includes Napa Valley wines with links to Israel and hors d’oeuvres featuring recipes from Rothfeld’s book.
In this Netflix series, Rosenthal travels around the globe taking in the local cuisine and culture of Bangkok, Lisbon, Mexico City and more. In Tel Aviv, he meets up with famous culinary faces including Master Chef judge Michal Ansky and chef Michael Solomonov. Rosenthal’s infectious enthusiasm for food, travel and meeting new people explains how he has won a James Beard award.
Rosenthal may be best known for being the creator, writer and executive producer of the sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond." In 2015, he started a food travelogue show for PBS called "I’ll Have What Phil’s Having," which ran for one season. Netflix acquired the show, and it was re-named "Somebody Feed Phil."
Rothfeld spent several months traveling through Israel to explore the vibrant food scene for Israel Eats. The locals guided him from one great restaurant to another, and to growers and producers of fine foods as well. This book is a compilation of stories, recipes and photographs of Israel’s food culture today.
