  • Cookbook author Dana Slatkin’s culinary fairytale

    By Danielle Berrin

    June 18, 2014 | 12:51 pm

    All year long, we long for the slow, sun soaked-days, the warmth, the waves, when we can fritter away the daylight hours in a marvelous cacophony of sensory summer pleasures — sweating in the sand, sipping sweet or sparkling, reading Russian literature and eating fresh garden meals...

  • Australia’s Jewish cooking club

    October 17, 2013 | 10:46 am

    In the cookbook collection of nearly every Jewish family sits a sincere yet amateur plastic-ring-bound volume of recipes. A group of women known as the Monday Morning Cooking Club has adopted this tried-and-true sisterhood tradition of culinary anthropology and recipe collecting...

    I don’t think there’s one thing more important you can do for your kids than have family dinner.” - Ruth Reichl, former Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet

    March 31, 2011 | 4:40 pm

    Two relatively new books tell the story of American Jewry, weaving together its past and present by examining tradition and making it relevant to today’s reader.

  • The Joan Nathan book party

    By Rob Eshman

    December 22, 2010 | 5:42 pm

    The first time I ever spoke to Joan Nathan, it was by telephone, and I wrote out for myself what I wanted to say to her: “Hello, Ms. Nathan, this is Rob Eshman with The Jewish Journal in Los Angeles, and I want to speak with you about your new cookbook. I think you should know that...

  • Loving your veggies can lighten the seder

    By Julie G Fax

    April 10, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Faye Levy doesn't look like anyone who's ever had a problem with her weight. The prolific cookbook author stands at 4-foot-10, and weighs about 100 pounds.

    But somewhere in the mid-1980s, just as she was working on "Chocolate Sensations" and "Dessert Sensations," she realized that...
  • ‘Kitchen’ Lets Kid Chefs Cook Up Fun

    By Julie G Fax

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Before I had a chance to flip through Susie Fishbein's new "Kosher by Design: Kids in the Kitchen," my 9-year-old, Yair, had swiped the hardcover off the pile of mail and bookmarked the recipes he wanted to try.

    And try -- and succeed -- he did.

    In "Kids in the Kitchen," best-selling...

  • A Jewish Spin On Gift-Giving

    By Shoshana Lewin-Fischer

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Everyone has the same shopping countdown this year: Dec. 25th is also the first night of Chanukah. With holiday-season commercialism rising exponentially each year, the plethora of items for purchase can be blindingly confusing for even the savviest shopper. Whether it's finding...

  • Nathan Takes a Bite Out of Boring Fare

    December 8, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    "The New American Cooking" by Joan Nathan (Knopf, $35).

    A tempeh Reuben sandwich and guacamole made with mayonnaise may sound like sacrilege to food purists, but not to food journalist Joan Nathan. The author of 10 cookbooks, including the award-winning "Jewish Cooking in America"...

  • Shabbat - Prepare a Meal,  Preserve a Memory

    By Beverly Levitt

    June 23, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In our family, Shabbat is always a potluck. Three generations bustle about very different kitchens, recreating recipes passed down l'dor v'dor, from generation to generation. And while I consider myself a fairly accomplished cook, I find myself regularly calling mom: "How come my...

  • Getting Stuffed on Sukkot

    By Linda Morel

    October 9, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "Have you ever noticed how plump autumn foods are?" asked my 9-year-old daughter two decades ago as we passed a sukkah, a leafy hut, locked behind the gate of a Manhattan synagogue.

    "You mean the peppers, pumpkins, eggplants, apples and squash?" I said, staring at a farmers market...

    "A Fistful of Lentils" by Jennifer Felicia Abadi (Harvard Common Press, 2002).

  • The Great Falafel Question

    By Jodi Kantor

    July 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The last time you bit into a falafel sandwich you were probably thinking about nothing more than the warm spice and crunch of the chickpea fritters and the way they played against the soft bread, crisp vegetables and nutty tahini sauce.

    Unless you're Palestinian, in which case you...

  • The Many Layers of ‘Cake’

    By Judy Bart Kancigor

    May 23, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Journalism 101, Rule No. 1: The interview is about the interviewee, not about you. Ask a question, then shut up and listen. Obviously, the instructor never met Sharon Boorstin, who is as interested in you as you are in her. No, really. My list of questions goes out the window.

  • If Memory Serves…

    By Rob Eshman

    April 22, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Jewish-themed cookbooks appear in a frenzy about a month before Passover, then die off by May. Mainstream cookbooks also try to cash in on the warming weather's ability to make us imagine nectarine tarts and heirloom tomato salads, long before winter comes to the Chilean tomato...
