A Dinner to Remember: Pardes

22nd of July, 2011

For almost twenty years,  we at Levana Restaurant hosted, indeed pioneered, annual wine pairing dinners. Magnificent dishes, with wines to match them in full measure. The memory I keep from the first of those glorious feasts is something very inconvenient I have yet to live down and turn into a...

Spicy Lettuce Chick Pea Salad Recipe

19th of July, 2011

saladsm1

One of my favorites! All of you out there always asking how we turn a same old, same old salad into an exciting main course salad: You can glorify it even further by throwing in some leftover diced fish or chicken, or make it dairy, and throw in some crumbled...

Anise and Sesame Galette Recipe

My sister Lea’s galettes: Hers the best, even my mother agrees! Galettes were a staple at my house in Morocco, and still are at my mother’s house, where all children clamor for them, calling them Maman Biscuit (they lump all her baked goods into this one generic word: biscuit), submitting...

Ratatouille Recipe. French Style, and Moroccan Style

9th of July, 2011

Ratatouille-Levana-Cooks

I don’t think Julia Child would object to a little tweaking of the French Classic Ratatouille, taken in a Moroccan direction. Besides, all things Eggplant are a huge favorite in North African and Middle Eastern Cooking. In Arabic we call this variation on Ratatouille “Za’Look”, which must predate Julia’s cooking by...

Beer-Baked Beans Recipe

baked-beans

When my son Yakov was a little schoolboy, he would always gush about Eagle Day Camp Baked beans. You must get the camp’s baked beans recipe , he would always urge me, with great glee. I did call the camp and they were happy to oblige: Their baked beans came...

Cole Slaw Recipe

1st of July, 2011

Cole-Slaw-LevanaCooks

I love love love cole slaw, and have long since stopped apologizing for my plebeian tastes. Yum! You will see that my cole slaw is much leaner than the mayo-drenched classic: This cole slaw version has very little mayo, and relies on pineapple juice for the pleasant tang and emulsion of...
