Posted on 24th of August, 2011 by Lévana

plum-tart-large1

I have my mother to thank for providing the inspiration for this beautiful tart. The base is not a classic pie crust as we know it, more like a cookie dough, making this tart much less perishable than the classic apple pie. You will create in no time a dessert...

Making stock for soup? Never heard of it. My choice of vegetables guarantee me a wonderful soup: Asparagus, zucchini, celery root, leeks, tarragon: How can you miss? Celery root gives the soup not only great flavor, but a slight bulk as well, allowing you to make this a creamy and...

cb11-18

You’ll love ’em! They have a small fraction of the salt and the vinegar of their commercial counterparts, and ten times the flavor. Crunchy and pungent with just a hint of sweetness, and really good for you too, like all fermented foods. I whip them out anytime I need a...

Mock Crab Cakes with Red Pepper Coulis Recipe

Posted on 4th of August, 2011 by Lévana

IMG_2328

Crab cakes and other seafood goodies were always verboten in the world of kosher dining as well as that of all diners who frown at eating seafood, until some inspired professional foodie recreated the texture and flavor with a plain-vanilla-type fish called pollock. It is processed minimally, so I have...

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...

Galettes

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...

Lev4Jul4b

This salad is an almost-constant staple at my table, as a salad as well as a side dish, especially in the summer when the corn is so sweet and tender I use it raw. It looks like red, yellow and green confetti and is very lightly seasoned, so the corn...
