    Israeli food is changing. According to food writer and celebrity chef Gil Hovav, his native country’s food “used to be a melting pot. Now it’s a zoo.” Hovav traveled from Tel Aviv to Boston last weekend to participate in the second annual Let’s Talk About Food... Read More

    We’ve entered the post-summer, pre-holidays lull. This is the time I try to eat sensibly, knowing all bets are off come Thanksgiving (or, this year, Thanksgivukkah). And then Christmas. And then New Year’s Eve. October is basically my last healthy hurrah until January. But the same... Read More

    The fact that Rosh Hashanah was so close to Labor day last week left me in a bit of a panic.  I'm not sure, but I think I heard my leather boots sniffling in the back of my closet, waiting to be called into high-holiday action. Yet, imagine their shock when I picked out something (gasp)... Read More

    Anyone who’s worked as a server in a restaurant knows how hard it is to handle food you aren’t allowed to eat. So why leave your break-fast preparations to the day of the fast, when you’re likely hungry, preoccupied and, worst of all when it comes to the kitchen, unable to taste... Read More
