Eggplant with Mint Yogurt and Harissa Oil

Last night I made dinner for my mother's 83rd birthday.  I know my mother likes cooking for us at her home-- because mothers like being mothers.  But I like cooking for the woman who... read on

  • French Fries at Home, With Kids

    By Rob Eshman

    Cooking with my kids makes me ridiculously happy.  It’s unfair, really, the power they have over my moods simply by saying, Yeah, sure when I ask them if they want to make dinner with me.

    A couple of nights ago my daughter Noa walked into the kitchen as I was throwing together a... read on

    I think the love of seltzer is passed down from father to son.

    Seltzer, just the word "seltzer" puts a smile on my dad's face.  He will never refuse a spritz.  And neither will I.  I have a bottle on my desk as I write this.  I don't care how fancy-shmancy the dinner party, I... read on

    How do you spell knaidel?  M-a-t-z-o-h B-a-l-l.

    For two years, from 1984-1986, I lived in Jerusalem.  I went to learn Hebrew, to work as a writer, to break up a relationship without facing the breakup.

    I had been living in San Francisco after college, typing out plays and freelance articles. I was trying my best to be a... read on

    We didn’t know anything about Boulettes Larder when we stumbled upon it in a corner of San Francisco's Ferry Building last February. That in and of itself seems to be a faux pas in food-obsessed San Francisco, if not an actual Class B Felony.

    The counter was filled with jars of... read on

    When was the last time you opened a tub of hummus and swooned?  When was the last time a restaurant put a plate of hummus in front of you, and you said, “Oh my God.”

    Most of the hummus recipes you come across on web sites, in print, on YouTube—they’re just wrong.   Most of the... read on

  • Israel à la Tarte Tatin

    Restaurants have souls.
