Royal Chef, Shakshouka Hexagon Kite - 2013

We were contacted by an Israeli TV reality show to make a Shakshouka themed kite for one of the show's contestants, the venerable Dr. Shakshouka.

Shakshouka is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions, often spiced with cumin.

Here's the finished kite, with the scrumptious Shakshouka with parsley on a blazing hot skillet:

And here's a short clip from the final show, featuring Bino Gabso, aka Dr. Shakshouka, and The Flying Squad.
