    By Elana Horwich

    May 6, 2014 | 9:00 am

    Roses can be consumed in the form of rose water. In fact, Middle Eastern cuisine has utilized the intoxicating flavor of the...

  • Pollo alla Cacciatora - The Hunter’s Wife’s Chicken [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    January 17, 2014 | 9:00 am

    For years I was misled about the true meaning of the names of famous Italian dishes such as pollo alla cacciatora, penne all'arrabbiata, cotolette alla milanesa. But truth be told, what seems to be the correct etymological reasoning behind these titles is entirely boring. I am much...

    For years, Rina Deych was treated like she was crazy.

    Fighting the Yom Kippur ritual of kapparot, she was told things had always been this way and if she kept up the battle, she would only incite anti-Semitism.

    Chances are if you are serving couscous, you are making something else that has onions in it. Well, save those onion peels...the outer layer and the skins. They have great flavor. Scrounge up some celery, a carrot, something green like a bay leaf or a piece of parsley and you'll...

    The Matzo Ball

    Put a little schmaltz in your balls.

    As part of my personal campaign to oppose bigoted boycotts, I will be having lunch tomorrow at the Chick-fil-A in Hollywood. I couldn’t get there for today’s official “Chick fil-A Appreciation Day” declared by Mike Huckabee, but I suppose late is better than never when it’s...

  • Trick or Trick

    By Julia Bendis

    January 28, 2011 | 3:30 pm

    Is it terrible that I am always tricking my kids into eating or doing something that they don’t want to do?  For example, for the first 8 years of my son’s life, he absolutely LOVED eating fish.  Not just fish, seafood of any kind, he even had calamari a few times.  How that...

  • Chicken and Duck Soup

    March 25, 2009 | 9:27 pm

    You will need one whole duck for this preparation. Have your butcher separate the breasts and legs from the bird and de-bone the legs. All the leg and breast meat should still have its skin on. Ask your butcher to grind all the meat for you. You will have approximately 1 3/4 pounds...

    The chicken, according to neighborhood resident...
  • Atoning for the sin of rushing dinner to get to Kol Nidre

    By Linda Morel

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I consider Yom Kippur eve the sandwich holiday. Not because I would ever serve my family and friends sandwiches before going to synagogue on the eve of a solemn fast. I see the start of Yom Kippur this way, because it's sandwiched between two days of Rosh Hashanah celebrations and...

  • But Is It Kosher?

    By Rob Eshman

    June 8, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    In September 2003, Whole Foods quietly removed one brand of kosher chicken from its shelves and replaced it with a different brand.

    By Hank Rosenfeld

    June 1, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The Rabbi of Chelm was teaching a class,

    "Rabbi," a student asked. "Why is the sea so salty?"

    "Idiot," the Rabbi intoned. "Because it's full of herring."

    Like many baby-boomers today, I sometimes feel older than Keith Richards up a palm tree. So when Irv and Eddie, my better...

    Although today's bar mitzvah parties are often as elaborate as yesterday's weddings, there's a new trend on the horizon -- a, noisy, jubilant oneg Shabbat and lunch directly after the ceremony, and a quiet, intimate dinner at home for a few close friends and family at night.

    I was casually walking through the meat aisle at the local supermarket yesterday morning looking for kosher chicken when I saw her holding a package of frozen shrimp.

    By Linda Morel

    September 12, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    In America, the land of excess calories, boiled chicken has a bad reputation. People much prefer their chicken fried, barbecued or sautéed.

    My parents were Elderhostel students this week at the University of Judaism in Los Angeles, and I shared Friday night services with them in the Conservative tradition of my youth.
