Make Hummus Not War
Could a regional love of hummus be the recipe for peace in the Middle East? One of the oldest-known prepared foods in human history, hummus is claimed by multiple Middle Eastern nationalities. So when Trevor Graham, a self-described hummus fanatic, learned of a 2008 Lebanese plan to sue Israel for acting as if it had proprietary rights over the dish, he set off on a personal journey though the hummus bars and kitchens of Beirut, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and New York. Make Hummus Not War is a documentary about the Middle Eastern conflict you don't see on the nightly news.
