Newly Orchestrated Biblical Recipes - with Moshe Basson

“Those who set the table and eat together contribute more to peace than any politician.”

As co-founder of “Chefs for Peace”, an initiative that brings together chefs from all religions, Moshe Basson was a guest at AXSOS AG in 2017.

Entirely in keeping with the philosophy of AXSOS AG, “Chefs for Peace” want to bring people together, and they see eating together as an opportunity to build bridges between the most different of world views. Moshe Basson's approach is rooted in his own personal history, since his family had to flee Baghdad to Israel to escape the persecution of Jews. This is why he speaks Arabic fluently in addition to Hebrew, and why he has made cosmopolitanism and tolerance his maxim.
