Photo courtesy www.yelp.com A friendly warning: You will never be able to speak disparagingly about the lowly prune again after you have tasted this magnificent dish, so find something – or someone -else to pick on. If you like dried apricots, substitute them for the prunes, or use half prunes...

If my upcoming cookbook is endowed with so many wonderful recipes, you have my daughter Bella to thank almost as well as me: While I was writing this book, she would call me regularly and ask me with great urgency if I thought of including this or that dish. (“Mommy,...

Moroccan Fish Soup Recipe

Julia Child’s Bouillabaisse, the perennial favorite, wears several hats, all quite becoming. My version omits the verboten shellfish, and has very pleasing Moroccan overtones (this Moroccan can’t help it!) Some Seder guest recently created quite a stir at my (kosher) table when she declared after tasted this soup: “I can...

Baked Almond-Stuffed Salmon Recipe

Posted on 19th of March, 2010 by Lévana

Stuffed Salmon

  Not nearly as hard as the stuffing part might make it sound. Who knew almonds would make a wonderful stuffing for fish? We Sephardis always did: almonds are a staple for both sweet and savory dishes. And when they are paired as in this dish with green apples, then...

I have been making these wonderful veggie burgers since long before the gluten-free craze set in, and for no other reason than that I am devoted to experimenting with every single grain out there. Their preparation is very much like making latkas, but  making them larger for a main course....

Posted on 24th of February, 2010 by Lévana

Cholent

Cholent, Dafina, Shkhina, Chamin: It just depends where you grew up. The stuff of nostalgia! I get countless requests for a “totally gasless” cholent recipe, and my answer always is, while I think this would be pure utopia (come on guys, get real!), I have many ideas for a cholent that is...

Moroccan Pea Soup Recipe

Posted on 21st of February, 2010 by Lévana

Pea Soup

A model of Moroccan food simplicity. Another soup that costs pennies, takes minutes, and tastes like a million bucks. Vegetarian without even trying, and so much richer than the sum of its plebeian parts. This is practically my granddaughter Tsofia’s first solid food. And guess who fed her: Who better...
