    January 29, 2014 | 9:00 am

    Tomato bruschetta, like all Italian staples, comes along with a set of rules. Unfortunately many of these rules are broken regularly even in top establishments. I am going to set it straight. Right here. Right now.

    1. Bruschetta is pronounced broo-SKETTA, not broo-SHETTA.

  • Baking bread as a meetup

    September 3, 2013 | 2:28 pm

    The steamy kitchen was filled with the heady scent of baking bread, while giddy young Jewish professionals stood around in pristine white aprons, drinking from tumblers full of rosy pink pomegranate lemonade. 

    Some seemed at ease among the electric mixers and cutting boards,...

    Italians would never make bruschetta on whole grain bread. Believe it or not, it’s not even easy to find good whole grain bread in Italy. But come on, no matter how good a fresh, crusty, country loaf of ciabatta might be, white flour is just not that good for us. (Don’t tell my...

    Bagels were granted equal status with soda bread in Ireland following a government decision to reclassify the traditionally Jewish favorite as ordinary bread for the purposes of taxation.

  • Turning over a new loaf

    August 19, 2011 | 2:08 pm

    It seems right that some of the first challahs to be sold in Stone Ground Baking Company’s beautiful new store will be the round challahs for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. It is the start of something new alongside the continuation of something very old, even ancient.   ...

  • Supermarket Memories…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 9, 2011 | 3:20 pm

    Every time I’m at the Supermarket, I start to remember my very first trip to one just like it.  When you come to America from the former Soviet Union and enter ANY grocery store, you are bound to go into shock.  As I’ve written before, the shelves of U.S.S.R.’s grocery stores...

  • What’s an Expiration Date?

    The other day I had a very educational conversation with my son.  It involved those small letters and numbers that most normal people know as “Expiration Date” printed on many food items that we purchase…  To my Russian family they were known as nonsense writing that meant...

    Today my 11-year-old son, Tyler shared a very interesting conversation that he had with his classmates.  It started during lunch time when he pulled out a peanut butter with bananas, and honey sandwich on whole grain bread.  After Tyler was done with it, he pulled out carrots,...

    Just when things seem to be on the verge of coming together—or a split second from spinning wildly out of control—that’s when a lot of people would turn to God and pray for strength, wisdom, guidance.

    I don’t.

    It’s not even that I don’t believe in God—it’s just that...

  • Not By Bread Alone

    By Rabbi Karen Deitsch

    August 2, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    "Carb" is a four-letter curse word in the estimation of most L.A. residents. Its nasty connotation came by way of one Dr. Atkins, whose "Diet Revolution" became more widely read than the Bible among many a secular Jew. Seemingly overnight, Atkins' "prophecy" became an orthodoxy for...

    With the flurry that surrounds a b'nai mitzvah celebration, we often lose sight that this day -- this passage from childhood to adulthood -- will be one of the most meaningful memories of his or her life.

    The memories will not be of the buffet table that boasted an ice sculpture...

    With the no-carb craze sweeping the nation, Atkins Diet adherents make sure to avoid pasta and potatoes, but when the High Holidays roll around, even purists are tempted by succulent Jewish breads.

    What would Rosh Hashanah be, after all, without huge round challahs? Or Yom Kippur...

    If you've ever been to Ocean Parkway -- that long thoroughfare traversing all neighborhoods Brooklyn, connecting the BQE from "The City" (Manhattan), to the Belt Parkway from Long Island -- you'd have seen the two "island" streets lining the two outer streets like an Israeli flag,...

    As most people know, challah is the braided egg-rich loaf of bread that we traditionally eat on the Sabbath and holidays -- two loaves of challah at each of the three Shabbat meals. They help commemorate the miracles that the Jewish people experienced during their 40 years of...

  • The Grape Taste of Sukkot

    By Judy Zeidler

    September 19, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    As a child, I loved the bunches of grapes that hung from the palm leaves covering the roof of the sukkah. These small outdoor huts were built for Sukkot, the Jewish holiday that gives thanks for a fruitful harvest. They symbolize the huts used by harvest workers during biblical...
