In Search of Israeli Cuisine is a portrait of the Israeli people told through food, conflict and all. The film profiles chefs, home cooks, vintners, and cheese-makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today - Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze. A rich and human story of the people emerges from their food. The film has played in more than 160 festivals and special screenings around the world and has been shown in theaters across the United States and Canada.

About Roger’s film Richard Rodgers: The Sweetest Sounds, Dorothy Rabinowitz, the senior film critic at The Wall Street Journal, wrote it’s “An extraordinary film biography, perhaps the best ever produced in the American Masters series.”

And reviewing Medal of Honor, Linda Stasi wrote in The New York Post, it's "An astounding array of stories about an unbelievable collection of unexpected heroes. This special is so awe-inspiring that if I could, I would award it four Medals of Honor. It is that good and that honest. Do yourself a favor. Don't miss it."
