Phil Rosenthal might be the only man on the planet to delight with equal wonderment at chomping on bear salami in Helsinki and on steak at Peter Luger; with equal pleasure having Elaine May and Mohammed the Moroccan waiter as a dinner partner; and with equal joy licking his fingers in hole-in-the wall eateries and folding his starched napkin at Michelin-starred restaurants.
Now, after four seasons of sharing with viewers that exuberant fascination, the foodie-traveler is changing his medium—but not his ever-curious message—in Somebody Feed Phil the Book.
The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center is honored to welcome back Phil as he brings his trademark excitement and self-deprecating humor to encounters that never made it on-to the screen, from behind-the-scenes moments with Dr. Shakshuka in Tel Aviv, to breakfast with Nelson Mandela’s grandson in Cape Town, to Tracy Morgan’s first egg cream, to the boundless glories of travel.
Creator and Executive Producer of Everybody Loves Raymond, Phil Rosenthal went on to develop PBS’s I’ll Have What Phil’s Having, which morphed into Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil.
A special screening from Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil and a conversation with comedian, actor, and writer Judy Gold.
