    In this morning’s Sacramento Bee, reporter Carla Myer wrote about bringing local, sustainable food to the Passover seder.  She interviewed me for the story, and was kind enough to include a couple of quotes.

    Eco-awareness aptly joins the other layers of meaning for the Seder meal,... read on

  • Howard Stern v. Jamie Foxx

    By Rob Eshman

    One thing Howard Stern understands about radio is that it is a macho medium. It’s a man’s world.  My friend Teresa Strasser, who used to co-host the Adam Carolla Show on 97.1, pointed out to me that a woman DJ doesn’t stand a chance in drive time.  It’s cultural, but it’s also... read on

  • Two Chocolate Passover Desserts

    I promised a great dessert to go with my local, sustainable, non-agri-business, healthy Passover meal, and here it is.  You can make this for many people very quickly, and it uses no margarine or that sludge they call non-dairy creamer.  God did not free us from slavery so we could... read on

    The three things I find hardest to give up on passover are pizza, beer and tofu.  Okay, mostly just beer and pizza.  Oh, and scotch.

    Just a quick post, but I didn’t want to let Passover go by without pointing out the BEST PASSOVER BRISKET RECIPE EVER.

    My neighbor Holly Wiland makes it, and wrote about it in a the September 14, 2006 issue of The Jewish Journal, and I’m reprinting here, because, trust me, it is a... read on

    In my cover story this week, I write about infusing Passover with the flavors of spring.  Here are those flavors:

    Gefilte Lettuce (Ceviche-Stuffed Butter Lettuce)

    Let’s fac e it.  If you grow up with jarred gefilte fish, you may eventually develop a taste for it.  After all,... read on

  • Happy Passover, Danny DeVito

    March 15, 2010 | 1:27 pm

    In Barry Levinson’s 1987 movie Tin Men there’s two scenes that always struck me as getting to the emotional core of Passover. The first takes place at a bar.  Danny DeVito plays Tilley, a guy whose wife just left him for a man he loathes, and whose house and car have just been... read on
