The Israeli-Jewish side of his family calls him Avram. The Palestinian-Muslim side Ibrahim. His first-generation American agnostic lawyer parents call him Abraham. But the 12-year-old kid with a blog from Brooklyn just prefers, well, Abe. Abe, a foodie who loves to cook, has never had a birthday dinner without a fight about politics and this year, on his 12th birthday, things couldn't have been much worse. Feeling hungry and dispirited Abe sneaks away to a late-night food festival and chances upon the "Mix It Up" Pop-Up run by Chico, an Afro-Brazilian chef from Bahia, who quit the high-end restaurant world to bring his special brand of fusion cuisine to the streets. When Amir and Rebecca, Abe's parents, sign him up for a lame summer cooking camp, Abe escapes to seek mentorship from Chico to learn the ropes of a busy kitchen, and soon wonders if these new skills can help him fuse the foods from his complex background.
