Fun and delicious, and a great choice for a vegetarian entree. As always, I ignore the eggplant’s insatiable appetite for oil, skip the frying and the slices, just enough to make them pliable and ready to roll! No problem making these rolls with gluten-free bread crumbs. These roulades will reheat...

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 love tilapia fillets, versatile, widely available and inexpensive. I always use the large ones (7 to 9 ounces), they never let me down or go to pieces on me during the cooking process. I serve it quite often when my husband and I spend shabbos alone, and want to...

We all observe a sort of frenzy that sets in right before (and right after) a holiday that is marked by some food restrictions. Like hoarding in prevision of a period of austerity. Let’s start with the most egregious example: Pessach. I recently attended a cook-off event for a famous...

This salad dressing is delightful not only over greens, but also with fish or chicken, grilled or poached. The pungent curry is a wonderful foil for the fruity and tart mango. Use only as much dressing as will lightly coat your greens, and include with your greens some diced fresh...

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?...

I always thought I made a good onion soup, if I may say so myself: My original recipe is in my first cookbook, Levana’s Table. But I recently received from my daughter Bella a magnificent wheel of Manchego, and decided to replace all the cheese I usually put in with...
