  • Recipe: The time of year to get your fill of kreplach

    By Judy Zeidler

    6 days ago

    I am always impressed by the fact that food plays such an important role during the holiest of Jewish holidays, and kreplach — dough wrapped around meat and boiled, fried or baked — is certainly one of these dishes. Traditionally, it is served between Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New...

  • How to make the best round challah: All you need is love

    By Elana Horwich

    6 days ago

    Every year on Rosh Hashanah, I make challah. And year after year, everyone tells me they’ve never had this kind of challah. 

    I could never understand what made my challah so unique — it’s round and has raisins and honey, just like all Rosh Hashanah challahs. I send people home...

  • “Young and Hungry” consultant, Gabi Moskowitz, tackles Kosher cooking

    July 30, 2014 | 10:52 am

    Much of Gabi Moskowitz’s career path reflects the current plugged-in, hyper-technological times we live in. And yet her experience is also rooted in a particularly traditional Jewish-American experience. 

    The food blogger, cookbook author and executive consultant to “Young &...

  • Little Italian Potato Sticks with Rosemary and Thyme [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    April 2, 2014 | 9:00 am

    These are kind of like french fries except one, they aren’t fried, and two, I am choosing not to give the French credit for them. There is no political or historical reasoning behind that decision.

    This is not because only a generation and a half ago, basically after two...

  • L.A.‘s Jewish food scene keeps on trucking

    March 12, 2014 | 12:57 pm

    In the years since the food-truck scene took off in Los Angeles, nearly every culinary niche has been represented. Jewish food and kosher specialties have been finding their way to eager, hungry crowds in new corners of the city via the Canter’s Truck, the Reuben Truck, The Kosher...

  • Celebrate Queen Esther with chocolate

    By Judy Zeidler

    March 12, 2014 | 11:50 am

    Queen Esther, the heroine of the Purim tale, was quite a woman. Not only did she outwit the evil Haman and save the entire Jewish population of Persia, she did it all as a vegetarian. According to tradition, when she moved into the palace, she became quite a party girl but limited...

  • Spiced Nut and Cheese Hamantashen - Gluten Free Option [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    March 11, 2014 | 9:00 am

    I think I might have created the best Hamantashen ever. Really.

    Basically these hamantashen are like a cheese and prune danish meets a nutty cinnamon rugelach

    Hamantashen cookies are so often not “wowers.” Plain dough filled with jam shaped in a triangle to mimic the...

    This weekend, I would like to present to you the most Israeli taste there is – Bamba!

    Bamba is a peanut butter flavored snack, unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before. There are many types and kinds of that snack, but the original Bamba is manufactured by the Osem corporation...

  • The Real Way To Make Tomato Bruschetta [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    January 29, 2014 | 9:00 am

    Tomato bruschetta, like all Italian staples, comes along with a set of rules. Unfortunately many of these rules are broken regularly even in top establishments. I am going to set it straight. Right here. Right now.

    1. Bruschetta is pronounced broo-SKETTA, not broo-SHETTA.

    2....

  • Broth of a nation

    January 17, 2014 | 2:09 pm

    When you're tired, sick, and grumpy, coughing, sneezing, with a stuffy head and scratchy throat, there's nothing more comforting than a hot, steaming bowl of homemade chicken soup. 

    There must be something to it because chicken soup is common fare worldwide. The poor, who can't...

  • Pollo alla Cacciatora - The Hunter’s Wife’s Chicken [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    January 17, 2014 | 9:00 am

    For years I was misled about the true meaning of the names of famous Italian dishes such as pollo alla cacciatora, penne all'arrabbiata, cotolette alla milanesa. But truth be told, what seems to be the correct etymological reasoning behind these titles is entirely boring. I am much...

  • 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...

  • Yeshiva boy to barbecue sauce master

    November 21, 2013 | 5:19 pm

    On a Saturday evening in downtown Los Angeles, as the somewhat surreal hush started to descend on Broadway following the weekend daytime hustle, diners gathered around an open kitchen at Umamicatessen, the flagship outpost of the reigning champ of nouveau burger chains.

  • How to cook a perfect turkey

    By Elana Horwich

    November 21, 2013 | 11:42 am

    It took a lot of stress and hard work to come up with this hassle-free turkey. Don’t think I didn’t personally slave just because I say it’s the easiest ever. It wasn’t easy to get here. Cookbooks were scoured, recipes were sent from friends, gravies were made and thrown out, my...

  • October Cake [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    October 23, 2013 | 9:00 am

    To be honest, this is more pumpkin bread than pumpkin cake. Yet since I don’t make actual cakes for myself to have on hand for fear that my inner ravenous fat-ass might unleash itself, and since I do have a tendency to uncontrollably devour any carb-y, creamy, cake-like thing I can...

    The Basics of Quinoa

    I make the best quinoa in town, and considering I live in the capital of quinoa, Los Angeles, this is quite an accomplishment

    My tricks are:

    1. Make your life easy and buy a rice cooker. (buy here)
    2. Dress the quinoa while it is hot and serve it while...

    Tired of having guests pass out in a food coma on your couch or get up to leave as soon as the meal is over? Dessert shouldn’t be an annihilation. This dessert is a pick-me-up that keeps the party going. Furthermore, everybody swoons and it only takes minutes to make.

  • The Shores of Capperi Potato Salad [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    September 25, 2013 | 9:00 am

    I am genuinely amazed that despite the revolutionary strides our country has made in the last century in both civil rights law and handheld technology, a dull-colored, gelatinous bowl of mayonnaise-covered chunks is still our national potato salad. This blatant culinary depravity...

  • Maria’s Vin Santo Chicken Liver Crostini [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    September 9, 2013 | 9:00 am

    As a kid, I absolutely loved chopped liver until I understood that chopped liver was actually chopped liver. I would no longer touch it. It broke my grandmother’s heart.

    Now, it’s a different story. Mmmm (hear the foodgasm rolling through my lips), I love chicken liver. Why?...

  • High Holy Days Food: Welcoming new breaking-the-fast traditions

    August 29, 2013 | 11:12 am

    On Yom Kippur, after the day’s hard spiritual work is done, the break-the-fast meal poses its own challenges. An upside: No one is terribly picky about what they’re taking in after 24 hours of fasting. Preparing a tantalizing spread can be almost an act of cruelty; better to keep...

  • Gluten-Free Raisin Spice Coconut Milk Kugel [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 28, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Kugel That Won’t Kill You

    There’s nothing that Jews like to talk about more than the terrors of disease and who in the community is dying. Death is both our greatest fear and our favorite dinner party topic. Cancer, heart failure, diabetes...if it can’t kill, it’s really not that...

  • The Braniac Muffin [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 26, 2013 | 9:00 am

    It doesn’t take a brainiac to know that bran is good for you. Bran muffins, on the other hand, are a different story. The problem with most bran muffins is threefold:

    one: The bran used is often harsh and can make you feel flatulent, to use the correct terminology. When consumed...

  • Perfect Summer Sangria [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    August 14, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Sangria is tricky. Made well, it is a mouth-enlivening sensory experience formed by the perfect marriage between earthy notes of good wine and the sweet acidity of juicy fruits.

    At worst, it is a hangover that doesn’t quit and a headache that splits temples in two. I’ve been...

  • Hocus Pocus

    By Michael Israel

    August 13, 2013 | 3:39 pm

    As I mentioned in last week’s blog, I am always fascinated by the exotic foods that I discover in Encyclopedia of Jewish Food. This week, I am focusing on an ingredient that is not very exotic for most Jews, but the way that I am preparing it is unlike any traditional Jewish...
