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.
