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

Posted on 14th of July, 2011 by Lévana

Galettes

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

Posted on 9th of July, 2011 by Lévana

ratatouille2

I don’t think Julia Child would object to a little tweaking of the French Classic, taken in a Moroccan direction. Besides, all things Eggplant are a huge favorite in North African and Middle Eastern Cooking. In Arabic we call this dish “Za’Look” , and must predate Julia’s cooking by a...

Vegetarian Stuffed Artichoke Bottoms Recipe. Meat and Fish Variations

Posted on 11th of May, 2011 by Lévana

Stuffed-Artichoke-Bottoms

Artichokes: A great Sephardi favorite, we grew up in Morocco, eating them in every shape and form, even for dessert.  Someone in the food industry, bless him, has done all the pesky job of snapping the leaves off the artichokes, and the even peskier job of scraping the fuzz off the artichoke...

My Mother: Learning to Cook, the Sephardi Way

Posted on 14th of April, 2011 by Lévana

I am always asked whether I have received formal cooking training, and the answer – Machane Imma: I learned mostly from my mother – at first seems somewhat ambiguous, until I introduce her in earnest: My mother, known as Maman to the whole family and even to all our friends,...

Herb-Roasted Trout in Grape Leaves Recipe

Posted on 6th of April, 2011 by Lévana

WHOLE-TROUT-ROASTED-IN-GRAPE-LEAVES2-783x1024

Grape leaves are delightful, not only for stuffing but for wrapping fish or chicken, leaving you with a moist and fragrant dish. This dish is overlaid with my favorite Moroccan flavors. I love to serve this fish as a main course on Passover lunches and other long holidays, and give...

Levana-Meringue-300x204

Kids, please: Don’t let’s get into a turf war with the distinguished and wonderful French Macarons, or with the  somewhat  less distinguished and ubiquitous canned Passover Macaroons that linger for months after Passover, or anything in between: Here come Meringues!  So move over sweeties, and let’s all play in the...

Artichokes and Carrots in Lemon Sauce Recipe

Posted on 4th of April, 2011 by Lévana

ARTICHOKES-AND-CARROTS-IN-LEMON-SAUCE

 Artichokes are a Sephardi favorite. In Morocco they are a staple, and I remember a variety I haven’t seen anywhere else: tiny, with pointed leaves as sharp as thorns, which we used to eat by the dozen at the end of a meal as dessert, much as the Japanese eat...
