  • Ditmas Kitchen & Cocktail: Kosher fare with flair

    By Jared Sichel

    April 30, 2014 | 10:56 am

    Chef Alex Reznik wants to be very clear: He did not just open a new kosher restaurant on Pico Boulevard.

    He opened a contemporary American restaurant that just happens to be kosher.

    The irony is palpable. Here’s a Jewish former “Top Chef” contestant who, after years of saying,...

  • Why kosher cooking is good for the soul

    September 12, 2012 | 11:28 am

    Cooking has been a passion for me, and passing on my knowledge and experience to a new kosher audience is one of my greatest joys. When my two earlier books were published — “Kosher Cuisine” and “Helen Nash’s Kosher Kitchen” — that joy was mingled with regret at having to exclude...

  • It’s Not Easy Being “Fishy”

    By Michael Israel

    August 20, 2012 | 6:02 pm

    Fish is one of the most polarizing foods in our diet. Many people have awful memories of growing up in a home where fish night was nightmarish. Prior to the explosion of sushi restaurants in the U.S., many home cooks were under the impression that fish are full of bacteria and...

  • Letters to the Editor: Gun control, Israel, kosher food at Jewish day schools

    August 15, 2012 | 1:53 pm

    Gun Debate Continues

    Dennis Prager puts forth two reasons to own a gun (“Jews and Guns,” Aug. 10). One is reasonable (family protection), the other (Holocaust prevention) not. He suggests we should arm ourselves, so that if they come to get us Jews again, we’ll be prepared for...

  • We Grew Up With Bibi’s, and Bibi’s Grew Up With Us

    By Louis Keene

    August 14, 2012 | 4:18 am

    Something about being a claustrophobic high school upperclassman lent itself to my spending Saturday nights at Bibi’s Warmstone Bakery and Cafe back in my Shalhevet heyday. I wasn’t alone at the little Israeli joint on the corner of Pico and Livonia, of course – that was the...

  • A Day with Gil Marks

    By Michael Israel

    August 13, 2012 | 1:24 pm

    Recently, on a trip to New York, I had the opportunity to meet Gil Marks. Gil has been incredibly supportive and encouraging in my quest to reinvent every recipe in his book Encyclopedia of Jewish Food. I wanted to have a chance to thank him in person for his work and willingness to...

  • The Look: Shanghai Diamond Garden

    By Louis Keene

    August 3, 2012 | 5:32 am

    I hadn’t been to Shanghai Diamond Garden in years. That’s because I’ve never been a fan of Chinese food, but their orange chicken always brings me back. This time with family, however, I decided to try something different. The Hunan Beef was not nearly as spicy as advertised; in...

  • With special prayers and kosher food, Jewish London embracing Olympic spirit

    July 30, 2012 | 2:50 pm

    For Leslie Lyndon and the London Jewish community, it was a minor miracle.

    When Lyndon carried the Olympic torch through a north London neighborhood last week, it was more than representative of how Jewish Londoners have embraced the Olympic spirit. This was five years since Lyndon,...

  • The Road to New Jewish Cuisine

    By Michael Israel

    July 9, 2012 | 7:07 pm

    Discovering Encyclopedia of Jewish Food has changed my life as a cook. I have always wanted to explore classic Jewish cuisine and find ways to contribute to its modernization. I am a firm believer that any craftsman, whether carpenter or chef, must understand the classics before...

  • Humbly Luxurious

    By Michael Israel

    July 3, 2012 | 12:22 pm

    Luxury apartments for rent! Luxury car sale this weekend! Luxury socks, get them while supplies last! The term Luxury is almost as overused as the word gourmet, so much that it has almost lost its meaning. Truly luxurious food typically utilizes scarce or expensive ingredients, and...

  • From which seeps the essence of Jeff’s Gourmet

    By Louis Keene

    June 29, 2012 | 12:04 pm

    College is about learning how to fit in, or—if you’re talented enough—finding out you don’t have to. As someone who fails to make the latter group, I often find myself ordering black bean cheeseburgers and pattyless patty melts to keep up with friends who eat traif with aplomb. When...

  • Stewing Over the Spanish Inquisition

    By Michael Israel

    June 25, 2012 | 1:33 pm

    The single most incriminating dish of the Spanish Inquisition, Adafina, is the first entry in Gil Marks’ inspiring tome, Encyclopedia of Jewish Food. Reviewing the more than 300 recipes in this incredible book, a few critical facts about Jews become clear. We have been kicked out...

  • The Cure [RECIPE]

    By Michael Israel

    June 19, 2012 | 6:03 pm

    Republican or Democrat, Atheist or Believer, Jew or Foodie. Most agree that the first two comparisons are well known as groups with opposing ideas, but few think of the third comparison as opposing groups. How can a Jew be a foodie or even think of being a chef in America? Chefdom in...

  • Most prisoners who get a kosher meal are not Jewish

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    May 2, 2012 | 2:07 pm

    The Forward has an interesting story about the majority of prison inmates who demand a kosher meal—and they are overwhelmingly not Jewish:

    A number of secular Jews, messianic Jews, Black Hebrew Israelites and, in many cases, people with no Jewish background at all eat a traditional...

  • Kashrut and Mindfulness:  Savoring Fresh, Local Fare at La Seine

    September 27, 2011 | 5:51 pm

    This is a story about a dream afternoon I spent at La Seine, where chef Alex Reznik is cooking seasonal, farm-to-table, California-Asian … kosher food. The restaurant’s owner, Laurent Masliah, named La Seine for the river at the heart of his hometown, but I can’t help but think...

    August 10, 2011 | 11:07 am

  • Man-o-Man-o-Sephardic

    By Rob Eshman

    October 22, 2009 | 7:56 pm

    Food crosses boundaries.  We all have appetites, we all have a genetic compulsion to look at what’s on someone else’s plate, and most of us are willing to try anything once.  One taste leads to another, and before you know it there is Peruvian sushi and lattes in Koreatown and boba...

  • Missing Matzah? It’s a Chain Store Problem

    By Adam Wills

    April 24, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    The hunt for matzah stretched beyond the afikomen this year. A matzah shortage this week left many Southern California shoppers driving to multiple supermarkets in search of the unleavened bread, which plays a leading role during Passover seders and is used throughout the week.

  • Top tastes of Purim wrapped up together

    By Judy Zeidler

    March 20, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    The theme for our family Purim dinner this year will be blintzes, but the preparation will be a little different and will include ingredients that are symbolic for the holiday.

  • Gourmet kosher brings out fear factor

    By Julie G Fax

    August 9, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I drew the line at locusts. I didn't care how cool it was that they were kosher, or that some rabbis in Algeria and Morocco say they are a delicacy. I wasn't going to eat a locust. Locusts are bugs. I don't eat bugs. Bugs are gross.

    Locust -- dried, fried and certified -- was the...

  • Prager; CAIR; Gibson; The Boot!

    December 14, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    CAIR

    It is getting somewhat boring to read yet another letter in The Jewish Journal from such a disingenuous character as Hussam Ayloush (Letters, Dec. 1). Typical of Ayloush and other CAIR officials, he engages only in ad hominem smears and refuses to deal with the substantive...

    By Roberto Loiederman

    November 30, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    New York's upscale The Prime Grill, coming to Beverly Hills this week, isn't your father's glatt kosher restaurant.
