I’ve been going to Surfas... read on

  • The Tabouli Lesson [RECIPE]

    By Rob Eshman

    January 29, 2010 | 7:18 pm

    They say we are all children of the same God, but it’s clear we don’t act like it.  For centuries we’ve slaughtered one another in the name of God.  We’ve enslaved, oppressed, reviled and ridiculed our fellow men and women because their god just looked at us funny. I belong... read on

  • What Am I?

    January 8, 2010 | 4:28 pm

    Last week in New York we ate at Yonah Schimmel’s Knishes on Houston Street in the Lower East Side. My friend Chuck first took me there in 1981.  Chuck wasn’t Jewish, but he was vegan, and Yonah’s knishes and borscht fit perfectly into a diet that allowed him to enjoy about 1/100 of... read on
