Recipes Remembered, a Celebration of Survival
The Kosher Carnivore
You landed here, so I am guessing you have a basic idea of who I am and what I do. But for those of you with fat fingers who mistyped a web address and found yourself on my page by accident, I write cookbooks with a charitable flavor. My mantra is Eat Well - Do Good, a way to combine great food and rewarding deeds.
I put my money ( and time ) where my mouth is, by writing two cookbooks whose proceeds go to charity. The first Recipes Remembered, a Celebration of Survival contains the remarkable stories and authentic recipes of Holocaust survivors. Their stories are universal, proving the power of faith, luck, resilience and strength. Their recipes represent the BEST in cooking from nearly every corner of the globe. Not just Jewish food, but the traditional dishes that nourished and nurtured generations of Americans for decades.
The Kosher Carnivore is really good food that happens to be kosher. It is a primer for anyone wanting to learn more about the extensive choices of meat and poultry available to them at their market or butcher. It teaches preparations of every kosher cut of meat, with tantalizing sides, sauces, marinades and salads to pair with the dishes. Whether you are kosher clueless or kosher committed, there is something to whet your appetite.
Now that you're here, stay a while and read on about both books, browse my Blog and enjoy the recipes and tips posted there, check out my Calendar to see my upcoming events, read a little of my Press and what I am too modest to say myself, learn more About Me and check out my quick tips in the Did You Know section. You might just pick up a little tidbit that will help you in the kitchen.
It has been an exciting time for me and both books. I appeared on QVC's wildly popular show In the Kitchen with David, where we sold more than 4600 books during my 8 minutes on air. QVC could not have been more fun and welcoming and David Venable is a true professional and a very sweet man. I had a blast! Several weeks after that appearance, I was a featured guest on WPIX demonstrating how to make matzo balls. The folks at WPIX were terrific and I do think my matzo ball soup went over very well with everyone at the studio. They were ladling soup into coffee mugs as I left the building. The video links to both are here, so if you missed either segment- enjoy.
