I was told the dinner we hosted at our home in honor of some guests in town from Israel this past Monday was totally ridiculous (love the new slang word!). Because it was a weekday, I looked to distance myself from “Shabbos food”, plus we needed to accommodate some vegetarian...

Kosherfest in Secaucus was great fun this year. I and quite a few others marveled at how the staff at Kosherfest pulled off the whole show with their hands often tied behind their backs, so soon after Hurricane Sandy, which crippled many warehouses and made transportation a nightmare. Although I...

We all observe a sort of frenzy that sets in right before (and right after) a holiday that is marked by some food restrictions. Like hoarding in prevision of a period of austerity. Let’s start with the most egregious example: Pessach. I recently attended a cook-off event for a famous...
