Yemenite Chicken Soup

Recipe by Leah Hadad

Yemenite Chicken Soup

This is a traditional Yemenite soup that was a daily item on the menu when I was growing up. For the seder meal, the cook would remove the meat from the pot and add broken-up matzah—enough to sop up the turmeric-infused broth. Then, hilba, a fenugreek relish spiced with chili paste, was added. It all

Recipe by Darra Goldstein

Roasted Duck with Apples and Prunes

From Sheilah Kaufman: Darra had this terrific duck at Bodil and Harry Wilson’s Berkshires house. Bodil served the roast duck with fruits, caramelized potatoes and sweet and sour red cabbage. I’ve played with Bodil’s recipe a little bit, using apple cider instead of water as the duck roasts to feature the apples so distinctive of
