Breaking – and inspiring – bread

Acre chef Alaa Musa traded the peaceful Stockholm streets for the crazy Middle East, hoping to infuse his port city’s cuisine with European style to feed both Arabs and Jews.

Chef Alaa Musa embarked on his culinary journey at the age of 15, working as a dishwasher. His life’s trajectory has since taken him from Acre to Stockholm and taught him that ultimately there is no place like home.

Though both Stockholm and Acre are located near the water, this is where the resemblance between the two cities ends. The capital of Sweden is a clean European metropolis known for its culture and trendsetting restaurants. On the other hand, Acre is a small town on the northern periphery of Israel and is inhabited by both Jews and Arabs.
