10th of February, 2015

Misleading Food Labels. The Food Industry: Friend or Foe?

21st of December, 2014

Food labels

Photo via I get into occasional tiffs about my undisguised contempt of many food labels put out daily by the food industry.  The gist of the blame aimed at me by a few readers is, if I really cared, I would be really grateful about manufacturers being kind enough to warn us...

Decadent Vegan Gluten Free Baking. Cara Reed. Book Review

17th of November, 2014


Bravo to Cara Reed for the recent publication of her book, Decadent Gluten Free Vegan Baking. I would feel much better starting with the kinks in the book, and get them out of the way, so we can move on to the good stuff. – Cara’s blog, Fork and Beans, is lovely....

OATrageous Oatmeals. Kathy Hester. Book Review

1st of October, 2014

9781624140747 Bravo to Kathy Hester for her delightful new Cookbook OATrageous Oatmeals. The title alone is a great promise, a promise Kathy Hester keeps throughout the book. Beside the obvious OATrageous pun, I do love the tweaking of oatmeal, that little “s” at the end propels oatmeal from a humble...

Taste of Beirut. Joumana Accad. Book Review

Taste-of-Beirut-Levana-Cooks After regaling us these past several years with her blog, Taste of Beirut, Joumana Accad has recently published a cookbook of her favorite native Lebanese dishes in a book also named Taste of Beirut.

Food, Family and Tradition. Hungarian Kosher Recipes. Lynn Kirsche Shapiro. My Book Review

4th of September, 2014


Gee thanks  Sammy’s Romanian, dubbed Heartburn City, for serving Treif  Shmaltz all these years, right in the Lower East Side, the original American scene of the religious Jewish settlers, to emancipated immigrants who want authentic Eastern European food (Romanian, Hungarian, Polish: all quite closely related) with no kosher strings attached. I can only contemplate...
