Hila Moverman 42: Shakshuka

“Shakshuka is a middle eastern food that consists of two eggs cracked over some sort of tomato sauce. It can be spicy but it doesn’t have to be. Typically, it is served in the pan and is supposed to be eaten with bread.”
Context: Hila Moverman was born and raised in Israel, and moved to the United States when she was 19.
Analysis: Food often unites a culture and makes one feel as if they are connected to a group of people because they eat similar foods. For Hila, she feels that this food connects her to her homeland and reminds her of memories of her mother cooking this food.
