Posted on 2nd of November, 2011 by Lévana

IMG_0449

Since I use spelt flour for all my baked goods (except the gluten-free ones), both sweet and savory, let me start with a word about spelt: While I see no reason to put the whole nation on a gluten-free diet (you will see throughout my latest cookbook that I make...

Upcoming Cooking Demo in NYC: Monday October 31st: Secrets of Whole Grain Bread Baking. Served with Salad and Soup

Posted on 24th of October, 2011 by Lévana

Too many of us simply don’t believe bread or challah can be as exciting if baked with whole grain flours, and often settle for mediocre bad-for-you white bread offerings. I have the modest hope of changing that in my circles of students and readers. As you all know, and as...

Chinese Cookies Recipe. Gluten-Free Adaptable

Posted on 14th of September, 2011 by Lévana

Chinese-Cookies1

Who knew they could be made right at home? And who knows why they are called Chinese cookies for that matter? I don’t think the Chinese have ever even heard of them. It’s a little like French kiss or French laundry or French goodness knows what else, which always leaves...

Plum Tart Recipe. Apple Tart Variation

Posted on 24th of August, 2011 by Lévana

plum-tart-large1

I have my mother to thank for providing the inspiration for this beautiful tart. The base is not a classic pie crust as we know it, more like a cookie dough, making this tart much less perishable than the classic apple pie. You will create in no time a dessert...

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...

Cheddar Dill Scones

Posted on 20th of June, 2011 by Lévana

cheddar-dill-scones

Whipped up in minutes, ethereally light, and delicious enough to serve for brunch or a light lunch. Dill and cheddar are natural partners. I beg you please use freshly grated cheese, it does make the whole difference. No cheese grater? Simply crumble the cheese by hand. These scones freeze beautifully,...

Carrot Cake CP

Me, my husband and my sister Lea.  Circa 1979, selling our carrot cake at a Central Park Fair. Our Post-Woodstock Pre-Chassidic days. You like? I remember cutting a slice for Bianca Jagger, Chi Chi Williams and many other Celebs! Our award-winning cake, circa 1979. Ideally moist and fragrant. I believe...

blueberry-scones

Scones are wonderful! Whipped up in minutes and full of flavor. I make them with spelt, my grain of choice for baking absolutely everything, but you will find them totally adaptable to Gluten-Free. You will easiloy find Xanthan Gum in health food stores. If you happen, as I always do,...

Tanner-brunch

We had a great brunch with our friends yesterday, a sort of antidote to Lag Baomer BBQs, only in reverse: Here is what I served, and it’s ALL in my new cookbook, coming out any day. I hope it gives you some ideas: When I described the menu to my...

Posted on 20th of February, 2011 by Lévana

chocolate_chip_cookies-3102

 This recipe is in all my cookbooks, including my upcoming one.  I can never make enough of these; and apparently, neither can thousands and thousands of people. A few years ago, I was involved with a few friends in a massive fund-raising project and made a million cookies (yes, a...
