Sweet Socca with Strawberries

Recipe by Jessica Grosman

Sweet Socca with Strawberries

Socca is a crisp flatbread made of chickpea flour that’s popular in Nice, France. It’s usually savory and served as an appetizer with wine, but I like to enjoy it with sweet toppings, like chocolate spread and fruit. Note: Use organic ingredients whenever possible.

Mexican Shakshuka

Recipe by Heather Bien

Mexican Shakshuka

For this take on shakshuka, I decided to do a culinary mashup of the Israeli recipe with classic Mexican flavors. With my recent conversion to Judaism and my Mexican heritage, this seemed like a fitting tribute to my past and present. The ingredients in shakshuka easily merge with Mexican seasonings—the base of the recipe remains

Pumpkin Challah Bread Pudding

Recipe by Heather Bien

Pumpkin Challah Bread Pudding

When it comes to nostalgic comfort foods, bread pudding is always a crowd pleaser. While you can make it year round, bread pudding is one of those traditional dishes that seems most at home once a chill in the air has begun to set in. So, how does one improve upon bread pudding for fall?

My mother called it galoub or gourse interchangeably, but others call it zalabia or dourdour. The simple fried pita is torn into bite-sized pieces, drenched with warm ghee or samna (clarified butter) and

Fish Reuben

Recipe by Sherry Schweitzer

Fish Reuben

Wanting to spend as much time on the beach as possible during our Sanibel Island vacation in June, our family of three headed to the nearby Sanibel Fish House to grab a to-go lunch. I wasn’t looking for anything more than a po’ boy or a blackened mahi-mahi sandwich; instead, listed under the sandwich section

Challah

Recipe by Alex Levin

Challah

SAF Instant yeast can be purchased online. It is the same as rapid rise yeast, but different from active dry yeast that’s sold in supermarkets. Active dry yeast is an unreliable substitute for this recipe. If you do not have a stand mixer, scale the recipe down to two-thirds of the weight and make three loaves

Josh’s Challah French Toast

Recipe by Nani Beraha

Josh’s Challah French Toast

There is no real recipe for this wonderful breakfast and it differs slightly every week. The challah itself changes in consistency week to week which affects the outcome of the French toast. This is the single dish my husband cooks with our children.

Bialys

Recipe by Marcia Friedman

Bialys

Bialys originated in Bialystok, Poland, and were brought to the United States by Jewish immigrants in the early 1900s. Cousin to the bagel, bialys are fun, small round breads with an indent rather than a hole—all the better for cradling the traditional seasonings like onion, salt and poppy seeds. They freeze well and provide a
