  • Fried food is good for you! Spanish eggs with fried potatoes [RECIPE]

    By Rob Eshman

    1 week ago

    Fried food is good for you.

    I always suspected as much, and I certainly have lived my life as if it were true. Even in the dark days of the nonfat cabal, when entire lives were wasted ordering nothing but ”toast, dry” and “steam-sauteeing” skinless chicken breasts, I continued to...

    By Judy Zeidler

    3 weeks ago

    Chanukah is not just for children, but usually they have most of the fun. They open presents, light candles during the eight days of the holiday and get more than their share of cookies and potato latkes. Our Chanukah party will be shared by four generations this year because our...

  • What’s the deal with canned cranberry sauce?

    November 24, 2014 | 11:30 am

  • One Israeli creation for the weekend

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    November 14, 2014 | 1:33 pm

    There isn’t much to say about Cherry Tomato. I’m sure you all know and love it, whether it is part of a dish or a healthy snack. The small-sized tomatoes are believed to go all the way back to Aztec Mexico in the 15th century. The Santorini Cherry Tomatoes were used in Greece in...

    November 12, 2014 | 2:15 pm

    This post originally appeared on Neesh Noosh.

    The title of this week’s parsha, Chayei Sarah (the life of Sarah), is a bit misleading at it is book-ended by the deaths of Sarah and Avraham. But, it is also filled with a celebration of life. Avraham dies in old age, but only after...

  • Caught between gefilte fish and Campbell’s soup

    November 3, 2014 | 10:29 am

    When I first gravitated toward writing about food and immigration to the United States as an ostensibly serious academic, colleagues asked me—and, frankly, I asked myself—the obvious question. Why food? Food perhaps lacked the gravitas and significance of subjects like political,...

    October 13, 2014 | 2:41 pm

    Original post appeared on Neesh Nosh.

  • What Roy Choi can teach the Jews

    By Rob Eshman

    October 1, 2014 | 11:12 am

  • Eating my way through Israel on a Birthright trip

    September 4, 2014 | 10:19 am

    At first, the idea of going on a Birthright trip seemed silly, at best.  I’d already been to Israel, twice – once on a family trip when I was 15 and first exposed to lax drinking laws and Jewish college boys, and again before my senior year of high school, on a Write on Fellowship...
