Will I sound like a dinosaur if I declare that in my view no one, but no one, can fill dearest Julia’s gargantuan shoes and imitate her stentorian voice? I remember going to hear her at the Javitz Center, house packed to the rafters, just a couple years before her...

I always thought I made a good onion soup, if I may say so myself: My original recipe is in my first cookbook, Levana’s Table. But I recently received from my daughter Bella a magnificent wheel of Manchego, and decided to replace all the cheese I usually put in with...

A few years ago, my husband and I were strolling on La Place des Vosges in Paris. At the outdoor terrace of one of those lovely restaurants sheltered under the arcades, there was a middle adged couple seated in front of their meal: a pot-au-feu, beautifully presented in a red...

Only for festive occasions, as it is more expensive than I like my dishes to be, but it will be the best roast you will ever have, and the sauce is to die for. I find that starting the roast at such high temperature sears it right in the baking...

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...

I don’t think Julia Child would object to a little tweaking of the French Classic, taken in a Moroccan direction. Besides, all things Eggplant are a huge favorite in North African and Middle Eastern Cooking. In Arabic we call this dish “Za’Look” , and must predate Julia’s cooking by a...
