Always Room On The Shabbos Table

It’s time for the next chapter in the re-education of kosher cooks. First came correctly pronouncing quinoa, incorporating edamame into salads and soups, and who can forget the strawberry mango salad? Now, there is a mass of new recipes available with the introduction of Kolatin, a parve bovine-based, kosher gelatin. Espresso panna cotta, here we come.

 

            Luckily, the doyenne of kosher cooking herself is here to help. Susie Fishbein, the supremely popular author of the Kosher By Design cookbooks, has developed new recipes that incorporate gelatin into desserts, centerpieces and even berry sparklers. Some of the recipes will be available in her upcoming cookbook, Kosher By Design Teens in the Kitchen.

 

            One of Ms. Fishbein’s recipes, tropical coconut pudding parfait, will be included on the first consumer package of Kolatin. Ms. Fishbein describes the dessert as “a really lovely coconut pudding layered with mango and graham cracker crumbs.” “Because you can layer this product,” she adds, “the presentation values are just stunning.”

 

 Other recipes include triple chocolate mousse pie and the aforementioned espresso panna cotta.

 

            This is not your grandmother’s Jell-o. “I was introduced to gelatin in the past,” noted Ms. Fishbein, “but I never used it because the results were not up to par. They didn’t have holding power and you want the shimmer. Once I got my hands on this, it opened up a world of possibilities to me of recipes I never developed before.” We’re talking no-bake cheesecake. 

 

            Using an advance sample of Kolatin, I made both a basic marshmallow recipe (designspongeonline.com), as well as Ms. Fishbein’s triple chocolate mousse pie. Both were delicious and neither required the oven. The mousse pie, in particular, was decadent and a fantastic recipe for the chocoholics in your life. The name comes from the three layers of chocolate-the crust, the mousse and an additional layer of melted semi-sweet chocolate that adds a deep and gooey texture to the dessert. The recipe is dairy and it tastes like it.

 

            Gelatin-based foods and desserts, in particular, are great recipes to make with children and teens. There is, in fact, a gelatin recipe in Kosher By Design Teens in the Kitchen. According to Ms. Fishbein, the recipe is a variation on a traditional Jell-o sparkler, “where you take the berry sparkler and make it more upscale or healthier using fruit juices that are high in antioxidants,” pomegranate or blueberry juice, for example. Cooking with children (and teens) is generally a great way to expose them to new foods and get them more involved in what they eat.

 

For all of you one-pot cooks, I should warn you, that both recipes I tried necessitate a few steps as well as bowls and dishes.

 

            That’s the thing of gelatin. Its magic takes time; not much time – five minutes will do.

This therapist kept focusing on how “I could do better,” never on how we could make the marriage work.

Mistrust that has lingered after the fiasco in Ferguson, Missouri, has edged the issue forward.

“The observance of a kosher diet is a key tenet of Judaism, and one which no state has the right to deny,” said Nathan Diament, executive director for public policy of the Orthodox Union.

Two weeks of intense learning in the classroom about Israel culminated with Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Students attended sessions with their teachers and learned about history, culture, military power, advocacy, slang, cooking, and more.

The nations of the world left the vessel to sit rotting in the water during one of the coldest winters in decades and with its starving and freezing passengers abandoned.

Rabbi Yisroel Edelman, the synagogue’s spiritual leader, declared, “The Young Israel of Deerfield Beach is looking forward to our partnership with the OU. The impact the OU has brought to Jewish communities throughout the country through its outreach and educational resources is enormous and we anticipate the same for our community in Deerfield Beach as well.”

Our goal here is to offer you recipes that you can make on Yom Tov with ingredients you might just have in the house. Enjoy and chag sameach!

Unfortunately, the probability is that he will not see a reason to change as he has been acting this way for a long time and clearly has some issues with respecting women.

All of these small changes work their way into the framework of the elephant and the rider because they are helping the elephant move forward.

This time of year, there is little pleasure greater than cozying up with a good book. The problem is, of course, that there is a lot to do.

As professions go, an international children’s rights advocate is probably not listed anywhere as a low stress job. Fighting on behalf of children in places as far off as Sudan, Yvette Garfield took their plight to heart and came up with – a cookbook. Handstand Kids, Garfield’s company, was established in 2007 to connect children in a global community. In her words, “I had done a lot of traveling and wanted to introduce kids to the world and food seemed the best way to do it.”

On my third visit to the annual New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show, I did not take any pictures.

Work-life balance has been in the media a lot lately. Anne-Marie Slaughter, a Princeton professor who served as the first female Director of Policy Planning for the U.S. State Department, wrote a groundbreaking article in The Atlantic entitled “Women Can’t Have It All.” Slaughter writes about her struggle with balance—parenting and working, and the importance of being present, as well as the importance of absolute boundaries between work and parenting. As evidence—both of the compartmentalizing men are capable of and as an example of the type of behavior women should engage in more, Slaughter writes about Orthodox men she has worked with: “Come Friday at sundown, they were unavailable because of the Jewish Shabbat.”

Now, only months after the artist’s death, is no time to be coy. Moshe Givati’s work is a revelation: dynamic, throbbing with life, pulsating with meaning. The exhibition “Equus Ambiguity – The Emergence of Maturity,” is up for only a few more days but I urge you to hurry to the Jadite Gallery and familiarize yourself with this under-recognized artist.

Memo to the New York Public Library: I’m sorry that I still haven’t returned several books by Livia Bitton-Jackson. They are a series of vibrant, touching memoirs of a young girl navigating her way through the world, both literally and on an emotional plane; the stories of a Holocaust survivor with wanderlust in a world that doesn’t want to hear it are not easy to part with.
