About this Cook
Born in NY and living almost all my life in Israel has introduced me to a wide range of cooking. Coming from a long line of food lovers and the clean plate community, I definitly appreciate food. Good food.
My favorite things to cook
I have my well known dishes that I am asked to make again and again but I love to try new recipes and learn new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am sorry to say but my family cooking traditions include too much salt, oil and frying. Although this is known to make tasty food, I have learnt to make it healthier but keep it tasty.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs don't go to a specific dish but to a whole ensamble. I love the compliments I get for a whole meal or an event, that include the food, the menu, the layout and the atmosphere.
My cooking tragedies
Who remembers? Isnt that why they invented "selective memories"? But I can't forget the holiday dinner (Passover) with 30 dinner guests and as we sit to eat I find out the whole pot of chicken soup went sour (was out of the fridge to long). Luckily I had saved the chicken and vegetables from the soup seperatly. I threw them into a soup pot, added fresh water and lots of chicken soup bioullion. Until we got to the soup - it was ready and perfect. I choked when my father in law commented that its the best soup he has had.

Dad's Best Haroset
This is great and exactly like my "Mom's Best Haroset" just without the pecans. My mom has passed away 4 years ago and Passover has never been the same without her haroset. Thanks for the memory.
