A Dinner to Remember: Pardes

22nd of July, 2011

For almost twenty years,  we at Levana Restaurant hosted, indeed pioneered, annual wine pairing dinners. Magnificent dishes, with wines to match them in full measure. The memory I keep from the first of those glorious feasts is something very inconvenient I have yet to live down and turn into a...

saladsm1

One of my favorites! All of you out there always asking how we turn a same old, same old salad into an exciting main course salad: You can glorify it even further by throwing in some leftover diced fish or chicken, or make it dairy, and throw in some crumbled...

Anise and Sesame Galette Recipe

My sister Lea’s galettes: Hers the best, even my mother agrees! Galettes were a staple at my house in Morocco, and still are at my mother’s house, where all children clamor for them, calling them Maman Biscuit (they lump all her baked goods into this one generic word: biscuit), submitting...

Ratatouille Recipe. French Style, and Moroccan Style

9th of July, 2011

 When my son Yakov was a little schoolboy, he would always gush about Eagle Day Camp Baked beans. You must get the recipe, he would always urge me, with great glee. I did call the camp and they were happy to oblige: Heinz cans, reheated. I am happy to report...
