Food & Wine

Sipping and Nibbling at KFWE 2019

The 2019 New York City Kosher Food and Wine Experience, hosted by Royal Wine Corporation, brought together over 400 kosher wines, many with their winemakers on hand, and some of the area’s most delicious kosher food for the trade, media and consumers to sample. While most of the same

Kosher Crops Aims to Create the ‘Cleanest, Freshest’ Salad Greens

While leafy greens contain essential vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber, they are particularly susceptible to infestation. Unwashed greens commonly house tiny insects such as aphids, thrips, leafminers and cabbageworms. Checking salad greens for these charming creepy crawlies takes a lot of time for many

Bubbe’s Sour Cream Cake

This recipe comes with a shoutout to my grandma, my kids’ bubbe, Edna Lichtman, z”l. She was one of those old-fashioned cooks who had recipes memorized and couldn’t give you exact measurements, so many of her most delicious dishes cannot be replicated. She “cooked with love,” and that love made everything she

Bimbo Bakeries USA Reinstates Some Kosher Certifications

What? No Flavored Coffee in Israel?

I was lucky enough to spend Yeshiva Week in Israel, visiting my middle son who is spending his gap year at a yeshiva in the Old City. A trip to Eretz Yisrael is always a meaningful experience, but this time I was fortunate to have my youngest child with me. His bar

Recipes, Tips and Prayers Connect the Norene Gilletz Facebook Family

Who would have imagined in 1968 that a woman who revolutionized the world of kosher cooking in Canada, with the cookbook she compiled for the Mt. Sinai Chapter of B’nai Brith Women, would become a household name for gourmands and chefs throughout the world? “Second Helpings Please,” Norene Gilletz’s first

No-Work Crockpot Vegetable Soup

Are you looking for an easy, delicious soup recipe to feed your family on those cold winter Shabbats, but you are maybe just a little tired of the old standbys? That was where November found me as well. After all the holidays, no one wanted chicken soup, and how much pea soup can you really eat? Then there is tomato soup:

Wandering Que Feeds Teaneck

This past Sunday, Cedar Market in Teaneck hosted the pit boss himself, Ari White, and his team at The Wandering Que. Hungry carnivores were treated to delicious sausages and smoked meats. The newest item on the menu was debuted—BBQ Brisket Pizza!

Kosher and French: Tasting Côtes du Rhône Wines

Part I of III

In an effort to better understand the wines in today’s kosher marketplace, we decided to go back to wine’s oldest, still existing physical roots. French wine has, for centuries, been the standard to which other wine has been held. Understanding

Wholesome Spiced Applesauce Muffins

A yummy Shabbat dessert doesn’t have to be to unhealthy, and putting in a bit of extra fiber into a flavorful muffin is hard to even notice. This no-nuts muffin is a little nutty in flavor due to the flaxseed or wheat germ, but the spice notes are really what make this muffin great. I always double this recipe and make a loaf

Chocolate-Dipped Scottish Oatmeal Shortbread

This recipe is a combination of an old McCall’s Magazine recipe from a book my mom got for her wedding, and an oatmeal shortbread recipe from a blogger I used to follow. Though oatmeal is a whole grain, I can’t exactly look you in the eye and tell you this is health food, but I do feel better about serving these than say,
