She co-owned Levana Restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan for 32 years where she introduced upscale, innovative ...

Kosher Under the Tropical Sun

Kosher Under the Tropical Sun

Last week, our close friends joined us for a week at a beautiful home perched on the cliffs overlooking a generous curve of beach on the French side of St. Martin.

Pop-Up Restaurant in Long Island City

Pop-Up Restaurant in Long Island City

Pop-up restaurants and roving supper clubs have changed the dining scene in NYC but with so many of them being centered around non-kosher meat, I haven’t attended.  So I jumped at the opportunity when my good friend A. sent me an e-mail with an invitation to a kosher pop-up hosted by Manna Caterin...

Kosher Revolution

Kosher Revolution

I continue to collect cookbooks despite the seduction of those powerful search engines that can bring up 75 recipes for chocolate chip cookies in two secs. My kosher cookbook collection is impressive.  I also have my share of vegetarian, Italian and Israeli volumes mixed in. In the last few years I have pur...

The Boathouse Moves Inland to Millstone Farm for the Evening

The Boathouse Moves Inland to Millstone Farm for the Evening

Whenever possible, I jump at the opportunity to attend farm to table events.  Not only is the setting guaranteed to be magnificent but the menu is always designed around items picked from the field on the same day. The flavors burst with freshness and there is plenty to eat for those who are vegetarian o...

Sukkot and the Seasonal Shift

It happens like clockwork.  Here in Connecticut, Rosh Hashanah is generally warm and sunny and by Yom Kippur the nights are downright chilly. Sukkot comes just five days after and the foliage is suddenly tinged with vibrant oranges and happy yellows of Autumn.  The festival of Sukkot requires us to shift...
