Posted on 23rd of July, 2012 by Lévana

Cooking on the Nine Days. The Meatless/Vegetarian Gourmet. Three Complete Menus

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...

Moroccan Butternut Squash Chick Pea Soup Recipe

Posted on 8th of July, 2012 by Lévana

We Moroccans love squash in every way shape of form, and goodness knows it comes in countless shapes and sizes.

We Moroccans love squash in every way shape of form, and goodness knows it comes in countless shapes and sizes. They turn up in many Moroccan dishes (Couscous on top of the list). Their spicy sweetness is equally at home  in savory dishes (I love Pumpkin Corn Pudding) and in...

Preserved Lemons Recipe

Posted on 1st of February, 2012 by Lévana

preserved-lemons-levana-cooks

Picture via http://foodlanerecipes.blogspot.com There is no Moroccan cooking without preserved lemons, and the store-bought variety doesn’t even begin to compare with homemade. They take minutes to prepare and two weeks to “incubate,” totally unassisted, and the result is a few months’ supply of the single element that will convert many of...

Moroccan Lamb, Lima Beans and Spinach Soup

Posted on 12th of December, 2011 by Lévana

Moroccan Lamb, Lima Beans and Spinach Soup

This soup is overlaid with Moroccan flavors, and smells as heavenly as it tastes. For many years, my classroom was in Lincoln Square Synagogue. The teacher himself later told me that he found teaching exquisite torture on Monday nights. I could have told them what I had known all along:...

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...

Rosh Hashanah Menu, Complete with Recipes

Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana

Rosh Hashanah Menu

I couldn’t resist drawing liberally from my Sephardi heritage to make my Rosh Hashanah menu selection. Our holiday dishes as I remember them served in my childhood home and beyond still make my tongue smile, even after all these years. And if all the pre-Rosh Hashanah cooking demos I have...

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

Sweet-and-sour combinations are a great Sephardi favorite, and work beautifully with salmon. The onions caramelize and contribute a sweet counterpoint to the vinegar. Another quick and delicious dish, just the way I like it—one pan, one step. Ingredients: 1 whole side salmon, no skin, no bones, about 3½ pounds, trimmed,...
