Posted on 15th of October, 2013 by Lévana

Holiday Kosher Baker

http://www.amazon.com/The-Holiday-Kosher-Baker-Contemporary/dp/1454907142 My copy of Paula’s gorgeous new cookbook arrived a couple days ago. All I can say is, thank Goodness that admiring pictures of her fabulous desserts and reading about them is somehow not enough to get you in trouble. You’d have to, you know, eat them! Reading Paula’s bio, I...

Posted on 1st of October, 2013 by Lévana

Swiss chard chickpea tajine

This past week was the second time in a month I spotted fresh dates at produce markets, and I started grinning nostalgically at this unusual New York site, as if I had run into a long-lost friend, which of course I had in a way. Growing up in Morocco, where...

Cheese Babka Recipe

Posted on 23rd of May, 2012 by Lévana

Cheese-Babka

Let me tell you flat out: You won’t get this treat in any New York Bakery. The ricotta filling is wonderful, but you might prefer to use it in combination with farmer cheese, just as long as you use 2 cups total. This will make you 2 loaves, but here’s...

Rosh Hashanah Menu, Complete with Recipes

Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana

Lamb couscous

I couldn’t resist drawing liberally from my Sephardi heritage to make my Rosh Hashanah menu selection. Our holiday dishes as I remember them served in my childhood home and beyond still make my tongue smile, even after all these years. And if all the pre-Rosh Hashanah cooking demos I have...

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana

salmon-chutney

Sweet-and-sour combinations are a great Sephardi favorite, and work beautifully with salmon. The onions caramelize and contribute a sweet counterpoint to the vinegar. Another quick and delicious dish, just the way I like it—one pan, one step. Ingredients: 1 whole side salmon, no skin, no bones, about 3½ pounds, trimmed,...

Polenta Casserole au Gratin Recipe

Posted on 25th of May, 2011 by Lévana

polenta-casserole

Please ignore those insipid cooked polenta rolls you find in the supermarket: Making the polenta base takes minutes, and is the bulk of the work for this delicious dish, which will serve a good dozen guests! Au Gratin just means it is topped with a crust: Yum! This is only...
