  • 65 Years of favorite Passover desserts

    By Judy Zeidler

    March 25, 2015 | 1:11 pm

    This year, I gathered together all of the Passover dessert recipes I have made, dating back to our first seder in 1950 — more than 125. This was in anticipation of compiling them into my new project, a Passover dessert cookbook.

    I thought it would be fun to share some of my...

  • Brisket-stuffed cabbage

    March 17, 2015 | 1:13 pm

    Like many other traditional Ashkenazi Jewish foods I didn’t really grow up eating stuffed cabbage. Italian meatballs and sauce on Sundays? Absolutely. But the stuffed cabbage my grandmother would make to serve perhaps at Rosh Hashanah or another holiday meal was a dish that was...

  • Masala lamb stew with creamy coconut quinoa

    March 17, 2015 | 11:24 am

    Passover is the holiday I plan for all year long, partially because I hate it so much. I loathe giving up my beloved bread and pastry for an entire week, though usually my thighs thank me for the brief respite. Nevertheless I seek inspiration everywhere: in cookbooks, online and...

  • Mozzarella and Tomato Caprese Blintzes

    March 9, 2015 | 3:27 pm

    I’d like to think this caprese blintz is the epitome of my background. A blend of cultures, colliding different upbringings and introducing new memories.

    I grew up, like many Brooklyn Jewish girls next door, on blintzes and bagels, on latkes and matzah balls and so did...

  • Oil, the bad and the sweet-smelling good of it

    December 12, 2014 | 10:22 am

    Chanukah is a holiday where we consume lots of oil-drenched foods. But beyond these dishes, what is the connection between oil and Chanukah? Actually, a lot, and it has to do with our agricultural system.
    We till the same soils through which God breathed Adam into existence....

    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...

    By Judy Zeidler

    The addition of wine to your favorite recipes can impart wonderful flavor, but too much or the wrong style can potentially ruin a delicious dish. 

    Example: Fish is usually better with the addition of white wine — except when using a pinot noir with a salmon recipe. Red wine can...

  • How to Choose an Olive Oil

    By Elana Horwich

    June 24, 2014 | 5:22 pm

    A common question I receive in my cooking classes is which olive oil to choose. This is NOT a no-brainer question.

    By Judy Zeidler

    April 10, 2014 | 7:34 pm

    The mainstays of a traditional Passover seder, celebrating the Exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt, tend to be a carnivore’s dream: gefilte fish, chicken soup with matzah balls, stuffed turkey and lamb shanks.

    Today, though, more and more families are planning a vegetarian...

    April 7, 2014 | 2:47 pm

    Planning Passover meals is always a wonderful challenge. For the seders, most of us focus on traditional family recipes because they are tried and proven, and because everyone likes them (and often asks for these favorites dishes).

    Wine is an important part of the observance of Passover — at least four cups are poured during the seder service. I’m sure we all have noticed how our wine tastes have changed since childhood, when only the sweet, syrupy wines were available.
