Recipe by Joshua Rosenstein

Mayan-Spiced Chocolate Chewies

Recipe by Lauren Katz

Mayan-Spiced Chocolate Chewies

My philosophy on Passover baked goods is to never use matzah meal or Passover cake meal.

At Dini’s, Beijing’s only kosher restaurant, the chefs cook authentic Chinese food along with traditional Jewish dishes and Western favorites that travelers expect (there’s a sushi bar, too).

Mint Chutney

Recipe by Shaina Shealy

Mint Chutney

Latkes are my favorite winter tradition. Four years ago, I threw a Chanukah party in India. I grated potatoes with three friends, two knifes and one hand peeler. We poked holes into a bottle gourd for a menorah. We covered the floors with newspaper to soak up the grease. We left the door open in
