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...

Salmon with Pomegranate Sauce Recipe

Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana

salmon-chutney

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,...

I find brussels sprouts somewhat underrated and underused in our country.  They are much more exciting than they sound, and much less innocent than they look; and their pungent bite provides a nice counterpoint to the mildness of...
