Upcoming Cooking demo in NYC: Glorious Tajines. Gluten-Free

Posted on 24th of November, 2011 by Lévana

The appeal of Moroccan food is universal. The aromas and flavors of the dishes do their magic every bit as much as the simplicity of their preparation. There’s just one more secret: What we call somewhat dismissively “side dishes” and which gets shuffled around on our dinner plate simply doesn’t...

Kosherfest 2011!

Posted on 14th of November, 2011 by Lévana

kosherfest2011-11
