  • How To Stuff Your Face and Stay Thin Over the Holidays

    By Elana Horwich

    December 18, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Eat only celery! Just kidding. Like that’s an option. People who give that kind of advice clearly could never be good in bed.

    We warm-blooded people are all going to eat a lot…as this is a time to relax, be with loved ones and stuff our happy faces.

    I often talk about how food...

  • Counting almonds

    By Gina Nahai

    December 4, 2013 | 4:17 pm

    Turns out, I have a natural handicap when it comes to eating like normal people. My daughter discovered this when she was in elementary school and forever engaged in a war of attrition over food: She wanted to live on green apples and Lucky Charms; I thought a third item should be...

  • Genetically engineered salmon: Coming soon to a bagel near you?

    April 11, 2013 | 10:52 am

    Do you want to be experimented on by eating sushi or bagels and lox made with a new type of salmon with eel genes in it — salmon which hasn’t been adequately tested for safety of human consumption?

    If not, then we in the Jewish community need to speak up now, for the sake of our...

  • Henry Jaglom’s ‘45 Minutes from Broadway’

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    August 27, 2012 | 11:01 pm

    Henry Jaglom’s 18th film, “Just 45 Minutes From Broadway,” revolves around an eccentric family of actors with roots going back to the Yiddish theater, spotlighting one spring in their ramshackle country house outside New York City.  There’s the patriarch, George “Grisha”...

  • At the New Year, let’s give animals a new Jewish chance

    August 14, 2012 | 10:34 am

    Shortly after I became a vegan, around 20 years ago, I ordered my first “vegan option” at a Jewish organizational dinner.

    It arrived: a plateful of raw celery and carrot sticks arranged around a cup of something ranch dressing-ish that probably wasn’t even vegan.

    Since then,...

  • The goat herd: A story of chevre, Shavuot and backyard goats [RECIPE]

    By Rob Eshman

    May 17, 2012 | 12:24 pm

    The most common question people ask when they visit our home is: “Why the goats?”

    We live in the city. A few houses west of us, four lanes of Lincoln Boulevard traffic roar past day and night. Planes from cursed Santa Monica Airport buzz overhead. And on any given night,...

  • Lemon Verbena

    By Rob Eshman

    April 25, 2012 | 12:14 pm

    When I was in my mid-20s, I fought a long, messy and entirely internal struggle over whether to move to Israel.

    Many young Jews living in the Diaspora — more than you think — face this choice. We spend some time there, either as part of an organized program, or, as I did, on our...

  • Following the carp — the fish in gefilte — from lake to plate

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    March 29, 2012 | 3:51 pm

    Big fish, cheap fish; sport fish, gefilte fish.

    With apologies to Dr. Seuss, that’s a decent summary of the situation for carp today.

    The fish has its share of devoted fans — some like it dead on a plate, others prefer it alive and tugging on a hook — nevertheless, by and...

  • Position yourself for Passover’s traditions

    By Judy Zeidler

    March 29, 2012 | 3:01 pm

    After many years of reciting the Passover story around our dining room table, we made a major change. My family decided to re-create the seders held long ago. According to the haggadah, when people live in freedom, they can eat in a reclining or relaxed manner.

    We asked our guests...

  • The Finger

    By Ilana Angel

    February 27, 2012 | 5:13 pm

    Our hands are truly miraculous, and like most of the miracles that make up the human body, I take them, and all the things they do for me, for granted.  Fingers are very special and so, in honor of fingers, and the hands they are attached to, I would like to share a few stories with...

  • Spice up your Jerusalem experience

    February 9, 2012 | 5:25 pm

    Even though the sap begins to rise on Tu B’Shevat, colder temperatures continue can drag on in Jerusalem for weeks, if not months. That means finding the right place to drop in and warm up at some of the city’s most appealing restaurants. To satisfy your need to feed, this...

  • Try Not to Barf!

    By Sima Cohen

    January 24, 2012 | 9:01 pm

    Processed foods are POISON. Don’t believe me? Here’s the proof:

    1. Ever heard of castoreum? It’s used to enhance the flavor of puddings, candies, and some frozen dairy desserts. It’s also derived from beaver anal glands.

    2. The food coloring known as “Carmine” that gives many...

  • Chef Micah Wexler goes global, and local, at Mezze

    October 12, 2011 | 3:14 pm

    Chefs often speak of a magical moment during their childhood, when something they tasted — a food so new and bold that it shocked them — changed their life and sent them straight to the kitchen.  For Micah Wexler, 29, the chef at West Hollywood’s Mezze, there was no such...

  • Break the fast with a buffet

    By Judy Zeidler

    September 16, 2011 | 3:52 pm

    As the sound of the shofar officially closes the long day of Yom Kippur prayer, people head home a little weary but spiritually uplifted. It has been a tradition for our family to gather upon returning from synagogue for a break-the-fast meal. It began when our children were growing...

  • Date Down or Slim Down

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 14, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Yes, I Still Think You Should Get Skinny
    So as you may know, a while back, I posted a blog about why I think you should get skinny.  You can read it here.  It was reposted as the “this” on Jezebel which you can find here.  And since then, I’ve been taking in what has been a...

  • Goat Alert: Avoid Mark Zuckerberg

    By Lauren Bottner

    June 1, 2011 | 2:44 pm

    New Year’s Resolutions:
    1. Wear a tie every day
    2. Learn Chinese
    3. Kill a goat??

    I get that Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, is innovative.  I’m all for swimming against the stream and forging your own path. But I’d rather my chicken arrives from the grocery store without a...

  • 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...

  • Bring the taste of France to your Passover table

    By Judy Bart Kancigor

    March 22, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    One might expect the chef-owner of a haute cuisine, award-winning French-American restaurant, where l'addition can easily top $300 per couple, to be an egotist. One would be wrong.

    Chef Josiah Citrin of Mélisse in Santa Monica, which earned the prestigious four-star rating from...

  • Don’t let foodies eat up all the fun

    By Tom Teicholz

    March 15, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    This time of year finds me on the treadmill in the mornings, futzing around the gym, taking walks around the neighborhood, eating lots of grilled chicken salads. I'm in training -- not for the recent Los Angeles Marathon, but for the marathon weekend in May when my wife and I travel...
  • Semper Fiber

    By Judy Gruen

    January 18, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I am a big believer in New Year's resolutions, especially of the weight-loss variety. I've even been known to renew my vows on a weekly basis. Yet, I have learned that any drastic promises, such as, "I will never eat another bowl of Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream...
  • Seven-Year Switch

    By Rabbi Haim Ovadia

    May 18, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    We want to have everything, and we want it better, bigger and more spectacular than everyone else. Gas-guzzlers roam the roads, and our oil dependency forces us to redefine values and ideals, like democracy and freedom. In Las Vegas and Palm Springs, we must have lusciously green...

  • Sonoma Plan Adds   Flavor to Dull Diets

    By Soriya Daniels

    March 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Dr. Connie Guttersen is on a mission to make America smaller. Well, perhaps not geographically, but at least to shrink the size of the average American.

    Scientific studies have proven that weight-loss diets that are based on moderate amounts of the healthiest types of fats, such as...

  • Scales of Injustice

    By Abby Ellin

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    I was 10 the first time I stepped on a scale. It was the summer of 1978, and I was visiting my grandmother in Florida.

    Every day, grandma and I went for our daily two-mile walk, past the golf course, past Publix, the supermarket where the old people bought prune juice and cod liver...

  • Fit L.A. - The Birthday Party Crasher: Dr. Atkins

    By Judy Gruen

    January 19, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Over the past few months, I have relished the apparent collapse of the low-carb industry. Low-carb specialty stores and magazines arrived with much fanfare but soon crumbled like a tired soufflé.

    Good riddance to them, I thought -- especially the magazine that tried to bilk me...

  • Say ‘Hi’ to a College Before You Pick One

    By Charlotte Hildebrand

    June 9, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Every year, the college tour is a rite of passage for students and parents alike, but for some it becomes an occupation. I wanted to make it simple, that is, wait until after my son was accepted, but before we had to give notification to colleges, a two-week period between April 15...

  • Read All About It

    By Teresa Strasser

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    At this moment, I have no idea if Jennifer Garner is having Ben Affleck's baby, who Hilary Swank is wearing to the Oscars or what brand of moisturizer Catherine Zeta Jones has shipped in from a nunnery in Peru.

    I am no longer binge reading. As of now, I'm out of touch with In...

  • Heart to Heart With ‘South Beach’ Doc

    By Soriya Daniels

    November 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    Carbohydrate-filled days are over. Almost everyone is on the Atkins or Zone Diet. That is unless they've deserted them for The South Beach Diet, which proposes eating the "right carbs" and the "right fats" along with protein, giving dieters the best of both worlds.

    This extremely...

  • Seattle—Kosher Mecca of Northwest

    By David J. Litvak

    November 4, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    In the past, the dynamic and innovative Pacific Northwestern city of Seattle has been associated with Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, The Pike Street Market, The Space Needle and grunge bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana.

    Today, the city can boast of having a stunning new downtown...
