Balaboosta Borscht

Recipe by Michele Amira

<em>Balaboosta Borscht</em>

My entire family is obsessed with red borscht—the kind that looks almost radioactive in color and conjures up memories of Mother Russia. That’s why I’m here to make a case for borscht this summer.

Homemade Roasted Chili Paste

Recipe by Pat Tanumihardja

Herby <em>Dolmas</em>

Dolmas (also called dolmades) are common in Mediterranean countries and are a favorite of Persian and Balkan Jews. You can find them on most mezze platters in Israel, and these days they’re even pretty popular and well known in the US, though primarily found at Greek restaurants.
