  • Eggplant with Mint Yogurt and Harissa Oil

    By Rob Eshman

    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 cooked for me for so many years.  

    It wasn't nearly as hot in Venice, CA as it was in the rest of... read on

  • French Fries at Home, With Kids

    By Rob Eshman

    June 20, 2013 | 4:39 pm

    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

  • Seltzer Man

    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

    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

  • Boulettes Larder: When Cool Chefs Serve Hot Food

    By Rob Eshman

    May 24, 2013 | 12:54 am

    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.

  • 7 Rules for Perfect Hummus

    By Rob Eshman

    May 16, 2013 | 12:18 pm

    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.”
