Sephardi food at its best and most fragrant. Straight from the Moroccan kitchen of my childhood. Ridiculously simple ingredients and hardly any labor. I have included several variations to make it a full one-pot dish, but you can choose to go without and make this a wonderful all-vegetable main course...

I whipped up this salad this past Shabbos, that’s right, on Shabbos, for my husband and I, as I was hatching a meal spartan enough (and of course delicious enough!) to atone for some of the magnificent meals we indulged in the whole Pessach week (don’t get me wrong: No...

I love tilapia fillets, versatile, widely available and inexpensive. I always use the large ones (7 to 9 ounces), they never let me down or go to pieces on me during the cooking process. I serve it quite often when my husband and I spend shabbos alone, and want to...

Making Shabbos in a Jiffy: This whole past week was taken up at my apartment with emergency repairs, and the first time I had full access to my kitchen was Thursday night. Since we are going away to Israel this coming Thursday, for almost two weeks, we wanted to spend...

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...

I always wonder if tilapia might suffer from underrating and mild neglect in the States. Economical, versatile and flavorful, there’s nothing I don’t do with it! This is one of the few recipes I fry, and it is a real treat. For a crust, I find cornmeal gives matzah meal...

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...

Growing up abroad (Morocco) I remember glorious outdoors feast, centering around a barbecue. The great difference with the American BBQ counterpart though, is that we serve smaller portions of meat and much larger portions of salads and veggies. In other words, not unlimited amounts of burgers, hot dogs, chicken, with...

I suspect many of you have the same problem I do: We all love herring and all briny smoked salty cured foods, but couldn’t dream of indulging in eating them in more than just minute doses, as the amount of salt contained in these dishes is nothing short of prohibitive....
