  • Friends Find Real Flavor of Europe

    By Matthew Rosenbaum

    July 15, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    We sat at a table by the water in Venice, Italy, enjoying gourmet pasta and the serenade of two accordion players nearby. A waiter brought dessert menus, and we struggled to speak to him in very Americanized and pathetic Italian. Like thousands of others college-age Americans, my...

  • Frank McCourt, Let Our People Eat

    By Steve Getzug

    April 15, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Consider the hot dog.

    For some of us, it's nature's perfect processed food -- with bun or plain, grilled or steamed, sliced up and cooked with beans or lathered with spicy brown mustard, sweet onions and pickle relish. But always enjoyed best at the ballpark -- especially at Dodger...

  • A Tabernacle Full of Knickknacks and Love

    By Andrea Adelson

    October 2, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Sukkot, the eight-day festival that begins Oct. 11, commemorates a central event in Jewish history: the 40-year desert trek that followed the exodus from Egypt when Jews lived in portable shelters or booths.

    People celebrate the holiday by building, eating in -- and sometimes...

  • For the Kids

    By Abby Gilad

    September 25, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Rosh Hashanah is upon us. We will use the shofar to blow us into the new year, we will dip apples in honey for a sweet year and our challah will be round just like the yearly cycle. Our new year will be celebrated this on Sept. 26, the 1st of Tishrei.

    Here are some weird customs...

  • Preteen Advocate Educates Nation About Diabetes

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    August 21, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    At first glance, Emma Klatman's summer vacation sounds like that of a typical 11 year old. She attended summer camp and traveled to Washington, D.C. Instead of merely a participant at camp, however, Klatman was a featured speaker. And in our nation's capitol, she came not to sightsee...

  • The Dayenu Diet

    By Carin Davis

    April 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    "Do these jeans make me look fat?"

    Smart men don't answer that question. Smart women don't ask it. But all women think it. Especially single women who are trying to bag a boy. After all, a man's first impression is based on a woman's looks. And single men are looking at more than...

  • A Culinary Surprise

    By Judy Zeidler

    February 20, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Recently, my husband and I traveled extensively throughout Vietnam, where we took several cooking classes and met talented chefs in Saigon, Hoi An and Hanoi. We ate everything from fresh Spring Rolls to Banana Blossom Salad. But the chef that surprised us the most was Donald Berger...

  • Latkes That Last

    By Gaby Wenig

    November 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Finally! You can now say goodbye to those weird frozen triangles of premasticated potatoes that pass for latkes after Chanukah has ended and the frying pan and grater have been packed up. Scientists at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa have come up with an...

  • A Forkful of Trouble

    By Wendy J. Madnick

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Turkey, potatoes and gravy, candied yams -- all the foods you love to pile on your plate come Thanksgiving. But you might want to check your blood sugar before you take another helping of mashed potatoes, because if you are one of the many American Jews at risk for diabetes, that...

  • My Mother’s Kitchen: A Natural Disaster Area

    By Burt Prelutsky

    November 23, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    My mother had a green thumb. Too bad she employed it in the kitchen, not the garden. To her credit, she was such a good housekeeper, you could have eaten off her floors. Which, unfortunately, was preferable to eating off her plates.

    There are people, I'm aware, who are terror-stricken...

  • Family Values

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    November 16, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    Gurinder Chadha was having one of those surreal multicultural moments you get in L.A.

    The Punjabi Brit was munching a bagel at Nate 'n' Al's when two elderly Jews walked in and ordered Chinese chicken salad. "I just thought that was hysterical," says Chadha, whose charming film,...

  • Eating and Praying Near Downtown

    August 10, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Where to Pray

    There are no established synagogues serving the immediate downtown area, but among the major movements, the shuls closest to Staples Center are:

    ReformWilshire Boulevard Temple 3663 Wilshire Blvd.Los Angeles, CA 90010Phone: (213) 388-2401(Large and grand, built during...

  • Use It or Lose It

    By Amy Hendel

    October 7, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    The other day, an older client said to me, "I've reached that point in my life where the only thing I want to exercise is caution."

    Just because we're getting older doesn't mean we can slack off on exercise. You can choose to be 20-years-old or 50-years-young. The difference is often...

  • Dining Out…

    By Rob Eshman

    December 11, 1997 | 7:00 pm

    As a rule, you don't go to museums to eat. Unless you're like me -- someone who, when push comes to shove, prefers great food to great art. I make no apologies: The last time I visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, I ate a tasteless, watery and expensive fruit salad in the...
