As you know I cook up a storm, along every imaginable (of course always healthy) guideline, playing on every imaginable theme. But making an All Moroccan Feast makes me especially happy, not only because it is my personal favorite, but it makes my guests positively swoon with anticipation and delight....

I have been tinkering with no knead Challah ever since I had the good fortune of coming across Zoe François and Dr Jeff Hertzberg’s latest beautiful book, The New Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day. My whole story is in this link. The purpose of this post is to share...

The New Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg: http://amzn.to/1of8SgA I have a good problem with Zoe François: I don’t mind her radiant smile and her luminous curls. I don’t even mind that she is always photographed in a skimpy t-shirt, even though she lives in...

My – usually virtuous enough – students and readers have asked me specifically to go all out for my Shavuot Dishes, starring mostly dairy treats, all those foods we love to hate. “With Cheese!!!”, one of them even emailed me in bold print: You asked for the splurge! The good news is,...

My whole grain loaves look plebeian and rustic, in the traditional Sephardi/Arabic tradition, but they taste GOOD! I recently received some fabulous meat samples from Naftali Hanau at Grow and Behold Good mother that I am, I decided to enjoy my precious gift in the appreciative company of my foodie...

Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread, ready in a snap. It has all the deliciousness of yeasted breads, without yeast, kneading or rising time. Perfect for brunch. I make my Irish soda bread with spelt flour, my favorite flour for everything: low gluten, high fiber, high protein, great flavor!...

This challah silicone mold, which was created to obediently take on a beautiful braid’s shape for dutiful but less-than-dexterous bakers, elicited many comments, a few of them of a gastronomic nature, most of them of a reconstructive-surgery nature (vaguely reminding one as it does of some enhancement plan…), and just...

Although the number of gluten-free commercial offerings is expanding daily, I am sorry to say they are quite often loaded with trashy worthless ingredients, and not terribly tasty, which makes gluten-free eating an unhealthy and uninspiring experience, defeating the whole purpose. You would be amazed how resourceful you can get...

Since I use spelt flour for all my baked goods (except the gluten-free ones), both sweet and savory, let me start with a word about spelt: While I see no reason to put the whole nation on a gluten-free diet (you will see throughout my latest cookbook that I make...

Too many of us simply don’t believe bread or challah can be as exciting if baked with whole grain flours, and often settle for mediocre bad-for-you white bread offerings. I have the modest hope of changing that in my circles of students and readers. As you all know, and as...
