The King of Börek

Documentary

It was near impossible to avoid one of the many branches of Sammy Bourekas and Sons in 1980s Israel. The first franchised food chain in the country grew from a small family-run bakery in Jaffa and turned the Bulgarian pastry into a national culinary obsession. Director Orit Ofir Ronell, the great-granddaughter of the empire’s founder, tells a story of immense success followed by a painful collapse. Family intrigue and bad business decisions notwithstanding, The King of Börek is a mouth-watering ode to the delights of a fresh, warm bourekas.
