Eating Jewish: Schnitzel

When you ask people to think of Israeli food, more often than not, images of crispy brown falafel will dance before their eyes. Yet, when speaking of quintessential Israeli dishes, falafel does not stand alone. Another dish that is central to the culinary landscape of Israel is schnitzel.

Passover recipe roundup

We're nearing the end of Passover, which means you might be running out of meal ideas. Alternatively, it means there's only a few more days to try these exciting Passover recipes!

Matzah Toffee Bark

So you've spent a week eating matzah with anything you can think of (I have personally eaten it so far with various nut butters, tuna salad, charoset, and jam).

Eating Jewish: Scacchi (Italian Matzah Pie)

When Passover rolls around, many people bemoan having to eat matzah with only a minority of people actually professing to liking it.

Eating Jewish: A new twist on Gefilte Fish: Halibut and Salmon Terrine

Gefilte fish, these two words make a lot of people turn their noses up in disgust while it can make others salivate.

Gluten-free Lemon Passover Cupcakes with Blackberry Jam and Lemon Glaze

This cake is not just for Passover, friends. And it's not even just for the Jews. I'm convinced that this is one that everyone will like.

Eating Jewish: Charoset medley

Although most, if not all, Jewish holiday meals use certain foods and dishes to symbolize various elements of the celebration, the seder meal does so in a way that is integral to the ritual of the meal itself. From the maror to the zeroah, each has its place in the structure of the seder. Of all these symbolic foods, charoset is definitely my favorite and I have to agree with Gil Marks when he says in the Encyclopedia of Jewish Food that it “is unquestionably the most flavorful and arguably everyone’s favorite of the seder foods.”

Eating Jewish: Oznei Haman (Haman’s Ears)

There are many Purim sweets that are modeled after Haman's anatomy or clothing.

Eating Jewish: Iraqi Purim Delicacies

With preparation for Purim in full swing, there is no doubt that many people are thinking about Hamantaschen, which has become synonymous with this holiday in North America.

Rolling in Dough

My congregation is having a big Purim Party on Sunday. They will need about 300 hamantaschen and I am bringing enough dough to make 2/3 of them.
