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...

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,...

Charif3

When life gives you jalapenos, make charif! One Saturday night, Erev Purim, my daughter Bella complained that she had placed her Shabbos produce order online, and that something got lost in cyber-translation, turning 4 jalapenos and 6 tomatoes into 4 pounds jalapenos and 6 pounds plum tomatoes.
