What’s New for Passover 2020?

(Courtesy of KAYCO) When it comes to Passover, most rituals will never change—but that doesn’t mean your meals have to be the same old same old. Passover starts at sundown on Wednesday, April 8. That gives you just a few weeks to figure out how to take a tradition that’s been around for thousands of years

Support a 100% Kosher Winery From Spain This Purim

It was a true pleasure to taste wine last week from Elvi Winery, based in Catalonia’s Monsant region, in Spain. This all-kosher, Jewish-owned winery, is a true outlier among kosher wineries and, if I may put my personal view right up front-and-center, I’ve never tried an Elvi wine I

Something Other Than Hamantashen for Purim

In an article by Dr. Yvette Alt Miller on the aish.com website, she cites Purim foods around the world from a variety of cookbooks. She includes the Ashkenazi kreplach (a “hidden” food because of all the secrets hidden in the story); French Palmiers (to evoke the misshapen ears of Haman); Russian Kulich, a long, sweet challah loaf to

Herzog and Rothschild Celebrate 30 Years of French Kosher Wine

No one can dispute that the elevation of kosher wine worldwide rests squarely on the shoulders of one family. The Herzogs, owners of Royal Wine, have single handedly, for well over 100 years, built a trade in all levels of kosher wine, from the ultra-high-end to entry-level table wines.

Tura Estate Winery Makes ‘Luscious,’ Inspired Israeli Wines

There have only been a few tastings with my group in which every wine tasted was passionately and enthusiastically lauded by every person present. Our recent Netofa tasting was certainly one such instance, but this was again the

Sender’s Is Smokin’ Hot

Our backyard grills may be in winter hibernation, but the scent of hardwoods and barbecue are in the air at Sender’s Smoke Joint, 190 West Englewood Avenue, Teaneck. With both a smoker and a wood-burning grill, Chef Alexander Remer is turning out smoked veal, brisket, steaks, chops, fried chicken and his

The Other Side of the Cork: Elviwines-Clos Mesorah, a Journey Blending Jewish History and Great Spanish Wine

The opportunity to visit Spain has been a dream of mine for many years. My dream became a reality one evening while discussing wine over dinner. I had an epiphany. 

A few weeks later we packed our bags and we were Barcelona bound. Around 1.5-hour drive south of Barcelona lays the Spanish wine

Domaine du Castel: A Miraculous Wine Story

With Chanukah coming, I thought that  telling the story of the legendary Israeli winery, Domaine du Castel, would be appropriate. We often talk about the renaissance of a wine industry in Israel, which began in the 19th century. Philanthropist Baron Edmond de Rothschild, perhaps the most illustrious member of the famous French-British

Latkes: It’s a Tradition

They’re sometimes greasy, sometimes salty and soggy, and they are fried in oil. They’re high in calories—sometimes, high in fat—sometimes; high in cholesterol—sometimes. But they’re oh, so good! They are Chanukah potato pancakes, otherwise known as latkes, in what we think is Yiddish, or as levivot in Hebrew.
