Stuffed vegetables are hugely popular in Israel and this is a dish you can find at workingman restaurants and Shabbat tables across the country. On Fridays we can smell it cooking throughout our building. I prefer small peppers for stuffing as opposed to the large ones.
Make Shabbat dinner a family activity with this recipe — after adults do the grilling, let kids do the decorating. Combine fresh mozzarella with summer fresh tomatoes and herbs on a pizza crust that's cooked on the grill.
One favorite dish of the Ashkenazim that survived the move from the shtetl to North America was the hearty mushroom-potato-barley soup called krupnick.
This recipe is a twist on classic babka. Instead of being made with challah dough, it is made from the baked challah!
This recipe uses some of the spices found in India but the use of lamb, cumin, and mint in a meatball speaks volumes about its links to the Jews of the Middle East and Spain. Obviously, matzah meal is a modern touch. Enjoy!
