The Pasta Factory Teaneck

Linguini Puttanesca

Dinner at the Pasta Factory Teaneck on Mother’s Day was a great experience.  We had one of the Mother’s Day prix fixe  menus, and it was spectacular: Corn Tomatillo soup, baby rack of lamb, and assorted desserts. Every bit as delicious as in our Levana Restaurant days, which is not...

Chocolate Oats Pots de Crème Long before the whole-grain fashion began (I am not telling you how long, I heard ladies don’t do that, but I will give you a hint: circa my ultra-lean student years, the very years that inadvertently turned me into a cook, as I was constantly...

Mushroom-Leek-Quiche

My Mushroom quiche is just as I remember it from my lean student years, and one of my favorite French dishes. Mushroom quiche was one of the great treats we splurged on.  Mushroom quiche, like all quiches, are a rich indulgence, but what a treat! buttery crust, cheesy filling: Yum!  For...

Collage close-up shot of traditional fresh japanese sushi rolls at restaurant

There are times we just can’t make nori rolls with rice (for instance on shabbos, or anytime when they need to be made in advance). Rice-based sushi is never quite as good after it is refrigerated: The rice tends to harden and get an objectionable tough texture. This is why I...
