Recipe by Nava Atlas

Sabbath Cabbage Salad Inspired by Rebbetzin Mushy

The weekly menu for Jewish Iceland’s Sabbath dinner varies a bit, but there’s usually a cabbage salad. Rebbetzin Mushky Feldman varies it each week. This is a recreation of one I especially enjoyed during my visit. The addition of ramen noodles is offbeat and makes it extra appealing!

Everything-Bagel-and-Lox Dip with Bagel Chips

Recipe by Heather Bien

Everything-Bagel-and-Lox Dip with Bagel Chips

A few months ago, I was at a Restaurant Week dinner at one of those hip places that is known for taking those classic old-fashioned dishes that make up our culinary memories, deconstructing them and turning them completely upside down and inside out.

Galoub

Recipe by Leah Hadad

<em>Galoub</em>

This traditional Yemenite fried pita goes by various names, depending on which of the 1,000 Jewish settlements in Yemen one came from. 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

With a squeeze of lemon for stability, this seemingly under-whipped meringue puffs the angel’s food until it’s as light as cotton candy. The lemon disappears in the

Recipe by David Lebovitz

<em>Labneh</em> Ice Cream with Pistachio-Sesame Brittle

I’ve been eternally fond of Middle Eastern food ever since my hippie days of spreading hummus on honey-sweetened whole wheat pita bread topped with alfalfa sprouts. Once I discovered the cookbooks written by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, Anissa Helou and Claudia Roden, I realized that Middle Eastern cuisine is a spectacular world of vibrant

Gianduja Gelato

Recipe by David Lebovitz

<em>Gianduja</em> Gelato

On my first visit to Torino, Italy, I arrived in rabid pursuit of gianduja, a confection made from local hazelnuts ground with milk chocolate that is a specialty of the Piedmont region. I was also looking forward to having gianduja gelato at the source. Needless to say, I did not leave disappointed: every bakery, chocolate
