Noshing Around the Lower East Side, NYC

Noshing Around the Lower East Side, NYC

I love a good walking tour almost as much as a hands-on cooking class. So when Jennifer Abadi sent me her Syrian cooking class schedule along with dates for Context Travel’s “Jewish Cuisine and Culture” walk on the Lower East Side, NYC, I was ready to zip on my warm boots, grab a proper winter hat and ...

Beyond Sushi, Rolling Outside of the Box plus Miso/Cabbage Slaw

Beyond Sushi, Rolling Outside of the Box plus Miso/Cabbage Slaw

I arrived so early for lunch at Beyond Sushi, the shoebox of a vegan sushi spot just off Union Square in NYC, that it was almost a late breakfast for me. With only three tables and a rockin' take-out business,  I wanted to be sure to nab a seat and settle in to feast on the creations that are all fair game ...

Roll Your Own Fish Free Sushi

Roll Your Own Fish Free Sushi

When eating sushi, NEVER pass food to someone using your chopsticks. That act parallels passing cremated bones of a deceased relative at a Japanese funeral. Instead, pass the plate, allowing the sushi to be plucked from it. Good to know. I learned so much in the “Roll Your Own” vegetarian sushi mak...

Pure Food and Wine Presents Fresh Flavors & Pasta-less Lasagna

Pure Food and Wine Presents Fresh Flavors & Pasta-less Lasagna

Just because I have great outdoor space for dining in CT. doesn’t mean that I don’t hanker for peaceful courtyards tucked away in the middle of NYC. I found just that when I arrived for a late lunch at Pure Food and Wine, just off Union Square, last week. 12020...

Cooking Heart Healthy Foods & Salmon Burgers

Cooking Heart Healthy Foods & Salmon Burgers

Invite me to a cooking class?  I am in!  I love them all: demos, hands on, famous chefs, home-style cooks … I am eager to be inspired by some unfamiliar flavor or technique. But with the steep cost of these classes,  I need to choose carefully. For me that means honing in on classes that focus on usi...

Cooking Glorious Tajines with Levana

Cooking Glorious Tajines with Levana

Levana is almost always referred to by her first name. Like another favorite, extroverted star, her name rhymes with Madonna. No connection. Levana is a legend in the kosher food world. She co-owned Levana Restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for 32 years where she introduced upscale, innovative ...
