    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.

    August 7, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Everyone and their mother thinks they know how to make a caprese salad but they do not. The irony is a caprese salad is so simple that it seems impossible that it is not always made correctly and well. First and foremost, I would like to let the world know that a caprese does not...

    Everyone says exactly the same thing when they taste this gazpacho.

    “Oh-my-God.” (And there’s also a large number who follow up with, “and I don’t even like gazpacho.”)

    Well, they’re right. This is God’s work. I can hardly take the credit. I didn’t create the molecular...

    1. Don’t make it fancy. Nobody likes a stuffy party. Let your guests pour their own drinks, take off their shoes and kick their feet up where they want.

    2. Ask your friends to help you during the party! They want to! Slicing bread, setting the table, lighting candles, serving...

  • Rustic Whole Grain Cherry Tomato Bruschetta [Recipe]

    By Elana Horwich

    June 26, 2013 | 9:30 am

    Italians would never make bruschetta on whole grain bread. Believe it or not, it’s not even easy to find good whole grain bread in Italy. But come on, no matter how good a fresh, crusty, country loaf of ciabatta might be, white flour is just not that good for us. (Don’t tell my...

    This dish is named after Roberto Benabib, writer and producer of WEEDS. He and his wife Samantha, a college friend of mine, were my first daring clients. I delivered food twice a week to their love-filled home after the delivery of their baby Carolina. We had an initial...

    I became an expert at making this dish in my first years in Rome when my pocketbook was nearly always empty (no complaints on my side, I was a bartender thousands of miles away from the traditional life everybody expected of me and couldn’t have been happier) and when my curiosity...

    I don’t compliment myself too easily. In fact I have a complex about not being good enough. I am terrified that everything I do will suck and bring embarrassment to my family and the entire Jewish people at large. A neurotic Jew- that is so cliche, which only makes me feel more...

  • Introducing God’s best tasting tomato

    By The Web Guy

    June 17, 2008 | 10:45 pm

    God typically releases some of his strongest new entries in the delicious fruit and veggie category every year around this time—including the best tasting tomato you can buy.

    This tomato—found in your local market wherever ‘heirloom tomatoes’ are sold—is the Purple Cherokee or Cherokee Purple Tomato.

    Look for it. Smell it.  Buy it.  Eat it.

    I prefer to eat it out of hand with just a sprinkling of kosher salt.

    Mmmmmm.

    Next—God’s best fruit.
