A Biography of Julia Child, by Bob Spitz

Just finished reading Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, written by author and biographer extraordinaire Bob Spitz. Let me start with my – very few – gripes, then we’ll move on to the good stuff. I did say Ouf! when I was done, not because I didn’t love it....

Julia Child’s Gateau Reine de Saba Recipe a la Levana!

14th of June, 2012

Julia Child’s Gateau Reine de Saba

I got my inspiration directly from Julia Child. The name Reine De Saba is not too presumptuous for this fabulous and ethereal dessert. It is almost flourless, but I make it completely so, and enjoy it on Passover too. Its short and dazzling ingredient list read like that of a...

My Version of Julia Child’s Vichyssoise Recipe

7th of June, 2012

Julia Child’s Vichyssoise Recipe

Please do not find me sacrilegious if I start off with an inspiration from Julia Child’s wonderful classic, Vichyssoise, and take it on some less-traveled road. Who knows, you might  even welcome my making the recipe so elastic!  If you are looking to watch your starch intake, simply substitute 2...

Salad Niçoise Recipe

In Honor of Julia Child JC100 Anniversary: Salad Niçoise Recipe: 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...

Ratatouille Recipe. French Style, and Moroccan Style

9th of July, 2011

Ratatouille-Levana-Cooks

I don’t think Julia Child would object to a little tweaking of the French Classic Ratatouille, 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 variation on Ratatouille “Za’Look”, which must predate Julia’s cooking by...

Moroccan Fish Soup Recipe

19th of March, 2010

Moroccan Fish Soup Recipe

Julia Child’s Bouillabaisse, the perennial favorite, wears several hats, all quite becoming. My version of Moroccan Fish Soup omits the verboten shellfish, and has very pleasing Moroccan overtones (this Moroccan can’t help it!) Some Seder guest recently created quite a stir at my (kosher) table when she declared after tasted...
