Kasha, onions, mushrooms: Perfect expat Jewish food. Kasha, known to much of the world as buckwheat, is a staple in many Eastern European countries. Toasting it gives it a delicious nutty taste, and rolling it in beaten egg keeps every kernel separated and plump. Do not skip either of these very quick...

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...

Here’s a perfect example of how some of the best things in life are totally unpremeditated. My daughter Bella recently bought some gorgeous lamb chops for an intimate Sukkah dinner for 4 (she and her husband Meir, my husband and I), planning on just searing them in a very hot...

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...

Only for festive occasions, as it is more expensive than I like my dishes to be, but it will be the best roast you will ever have, and the sauce is to die for. I find that starting the roast at such high temperature sears it right in the baking...

Guys, here’s what I do, and this is really all it takes. I buy porcini powder online, just to make sure I get the best price, a whole pound of it. It doesn’t really need a kosher certification, but it just happens to have one. It will at first seem...

Beautiful enough to use as main course. The stuffing takes only a few minutes to make and freezes very well, so you might consider doubling the amounts and freezing the unused part for another meal. It will be suitable (minus the cheese) to stuff thinly pounded chicken cutlets too, using...

I love quinoa, on Passover and year-round. A staple in South America, it’s a nutritional powerhouse, and delicious too, and so versatile! Quinoa comes in white, red and black, as I did here, so mix and match and get fun results each time. Please do not skip the step where...

This dish is equally at home as a salad and as a side dish. I never submit to the tyranny of frying eggplant, which is not only time consuming, but gobbles up lots of oil. I have included a mushroom-eggplant combo, using exactly the same recipe, but throwing in small...

Lamb shanks are one of the most ideal cuts of the lamb: Lean, tender, low maintenance, and best of all, very well priced! And I love their rustic, unpretentious look making your homemade dish look ….. homemade. The bones in the shanks contribute a succulent gelatinous texture. I am making...
