My future pets, awaiting slaughter

I bought my first chickens more than 16 years ago, when we lived in Santa Monica.  We moved to Venice, I went chickenless for years, then about five years ago discovered the Omlet, a clean... read on

  • Variations on Me

    By Rob Eshman

    I know, it sounds like the opening line of Penthouse Letters, but it’s true.  During the High Holy Days, when Naomi leads Nashuva services, she has the band over to run through the music for the special Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur liturgy.  Sounds great, two guitars, a bass, two... read on

  • Eat More Cholent

    By Rob Eshman

    September 21, 2009 | 8:05 pm

    My resolution for the New Year is to make more cholent.

    Cholent is the traditional Sabbath stew, assembled and put in the oven (or on the stove, or in a crock pot) on Friday before the Sabbath, then cooked at a low temperature until Sabbath lunch.

    Every time you enter a restaurant, you take a leap of faith.  Last night, at Ado in Venice, I took a huge frickin’ jump.

    August 23, 2009 | 6:11 pm

    In his column today, Nick Kristof proves he’s a Foodaism believer.  Trying to illuminate what is lost when the diversity of the family farm gives way to factory farms and monoculture, he reaches far beyond the true and obvious: our health, our environment, taste, choice—and concludes... read on

    I’ve been absolutely stupendously busy, and this blog, favorite of all my blogs, has suffered.  So here’s a quick fun post, because Foodaism teaches us that you have to grab those quiet moments where and when you can.
