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 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....

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...

This shabbos looked like it was going to be another unseasonably chilly day, soup weather. And I had several non-meat eaters coming for lunch. So I made fish for main course, but decided I would make a soup for first course. The result was out of this world, and is...

Poor parsnips too often serve as crowd actor, and then get discarded (as in chicken soup), but here they are “it”. Who knew they could be so fabulous? hot and sweet is a great treatment for them, and the easiest. They are delicious at room temperature as well. Sephardi Tsimmis?...

The signature triangle-shaped fun Purim cookie, shrouded in legend and folklore (ear-shaped? purse-shaped? Read on!) with three points pinched around a jam filling. It matters not at all if you don’t celebrate Purim—you will love ’em! Attention Gluten-Free Diners: This is for you too! The day you get really adventurous,...

Borekas are the perfect occasional treat: Ethereally light and crunchy, and so easy to make. There are no fillings you can’t use, savory or sweet. Here I make my filling without even sauteing anything: I just add a finely grated raw potato to my spinach filling to be sure any...

My granddaughter Musia and I had ourselves a little cottage cheese party this past shabbos. Just in case cottage cheese eaten alone sounds too plain, here’s how to jazz it up! My mother in law used to make it for us all the time, and called it – mysteriously –...
