  • 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...

  • Israeli Breakfast Buffet Parfait

    By Rob Eshman

    September 24, 2013 | 8:19 am

    The Israeli Breakfast Buffet Parfait is my attempt to recreate Israel in a glass.

    The normal breakfast in an Israeli hotel is an endless buffet of fresh vegetables, pickles, olives, salted fish, fresh cheeses, boiled eggs, fresh breads, olive oil and za'atar.  I was 12 when I...

    I am excited to announce that I will be competing on the Food Network’s Chopped on Sunday August 18th! Chopped is a cooking competition show that pits four chefs against each other in a three round competition. In each round, the chefs are given a mystery basket of ingredients and...

  • Taking Leaves

    By Rob Eshman

    May 30, 2013 | 1:12 am

    For two years, from 1984-1986, I lived in Jerusalem.  I went to learn Hebrew, to work as a writer, to break up a relationship without facing the breakup.

    I had been living in San Francisco after college, typing out plays and freelance articles. I was trying my best to be a...

  • Oh, Jerusalem, the Cookbook [RECIPE]

    By Rob Eshman

    March 22, 2013 | 1:27 pm

    In this week's Jewish Journal, Joan Nathan reviewed Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's beautiful cookbook, Jerusalem.  When I first got hold of the book last year, I knew the dream reviewer would be Joan.  She lived in Jerusalem decades ago, serving as an assistant to then mayor,...

  • West Hollywood’s Ta-eem Grill, a spot for vegan and meat eaters

    By Rob Eshman

    February 20, 2013 | 11:22 am

    My favorite vegan food in Los Angeles these days comes from a small, crowded restaurant on Melrose with a giant skewer of animal flesh rotating in the window.

    In a city that seems to be enthralled with new vegan and conscious-food temples, like Café Gratitude and Feed Body &...

  • Unexpected Israeli cuisine

    January 16, 2013 | 12:36 pm

    I'm not sure what I expected. Hummus, certainly, but what else? Stuffed derma? Latkes? Matzah ball soup? As a native New Yorker with Ashkenazi roots, the foods I associated with being Jewish were the foods I associated with my grandparents. By extension, I suppose, I also...

  • Savoring the new wave of Israeli Food

    May 28, 2010 | 12:12 pm

    My first introduction to Israeli cuisine was during my day-school years, when the teachers would bring in falafel and hummus for Israel Independence Day. My knowledge of Israeli food deepened during trips to Israel, and my knowledge of fine cuisine in general expanded as I grew up...

  • Watching your language at a Made-in-Israel meal

    April 15, 2010 | 8:17 am

    Is Israeli cuisine the original fusion food?

    This year, a few weeks before Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel Independence Day, I inadvertently answered this question while shopping for a dinner to celebrate the day. Last summer, I had heard that at the Trader Joe’s supermarket chain,...
