Pesto Alfredo with Goat Cheese

Many of my readers know of my obsession with goat cheese. With that in mind, I wanted to create an exciting new recipe for Shavuot combining two of my family’s favorite flavors: pesto and goat cheese. Goat cheese has become very popular in the past few years — especially popular among elderly and children who […]

Asian Flanken Ribs

Last week on my radio show “Table for Two” on the Nachum Segal Network, I joined up with another host of the Network, Mark Zomick. Mark hosts The Stunt Show and we did a mash-up of our two shows. We broadcasted our show from Mark’s backyard and barbecued all kinds of meats to show our […]

Passover Sushi with Cauliflower or Quinoa

Mandel bread (Pesach Biscotti)

Gefilte Fish Hamentashen

Tu B’shvat Feast 5775

When I was in Seminary in Israel, it was the first time I could really appreciate what Tu B’Shevat really meant. One could hardly move on Rechov Yaffo as there were vendors packing the streets selling plants, trees, shrubs and flowers. Tu B’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar — celebrated this year […]
