(The Nosher) Hamantaschen are the beloved cookies that Jews enjoy during the holiday of Purim. The tasty treats were born out of Austria, where they were originally filled with poppy seed (or muhn in German), which kind of sounded like Haman (the bad guy in the Purim story for whom the cookies are...
  He always love a good challah story, and here’s one that comes from Miami: Zak Stern, owner of Zak The Baker, was recently featured by Munchies, Vice’s food blog. This challah-studded article depicts the highs and lows of building a kosher bakery from the ground up. Zak, who grew up in a secular, suburban...
(The Nosher) There are so many wonderful Jewish foods to enjoy: sabich and pastrami, kubaneh and knishes, babka and bimuelos. But there’s also some seriously cringe-worthy traditional Jewish foods that still grace many holiday and Friday night dinner tables. Of course there is the argument to be made that one man’s gefilte fish jelly is another man’s caviar....
Somebody Jewish must be working for the Starbucks website. The site includes description pages for each of their products, including the Plain Bagel. Included on the page are nutrition facts. What appears under the list of calories, however, might surprise you. In case you're skeptical, this is real. You can check...
(The Nosher) You may have grown up with your mom, dad or grandma frying up latkes at the stove. Probably for hours and hours. Frying up donuts may be slightly less common, at least for American Jews where the latke still seems to reign supreme over sufganiyot. But donuts are not super...
(The Nosher) Drive down any main highway in Israel on a Saturday, and you’re bound to run into a makeshift jachnun stand on the side of the road. The best-known food of the Yemenite Jewish community has now become a part of mainstream Israeli cuisine, along with a whole host of...
ENSCHEDE, Netherlands (JTA) — For most matzah bakeries, Passover is their lifeline and only claim to financial viability. After the weeklong holiday, during which Jews are commanded to consume matzah to commemorate their ancestors’ hurried flight out of Egypt, demand for the famously tasteless cracker drops sharply. Except, that is, in the...

(The Nosher) When you look at the menus of the new Jewish restaurants opening around the country, the dishes most often focus on smoked meat sandwiches, hand-rolled bagels topped with colorful vegetables and cured fish, and the uber-popular (and super Instagram-able) shakshuka. Foods like tongue, herring, or borscht? Not so much. Except at...
(JTA) — Not even couscous is safe from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. For decades, Israelis and Palestinians have fought over land. They’ve fought over history. They’ve fought over holy sites and religious doctrine and water sources. Now, apparently, they’re fighting over the delicious grain dish that I always buy when I...
Of all the kugels out there–potato, broccoli, sweet potato, and even carrot kugel–sweet noodle kugel is by far my favorite. Some are studded with raisins and cinnamon, some with dairy, some with cranberry. But we thought it would be fun to get a little wacky with noodle kugel and add some...
(Tablet Mag) On a Sunday afternoon last March, a group of people wearing comfortable shoes and toting water bottles congregated outside a Judaica shop in Brooklyn. Before long they were joined by Myra Alperson, the high-energy founder of Noshwalks, an organization that leads culinary walking tours around New York City. The...
(The Nosher) With eight days, and three meals a day, Hanukkah offers ample opportunities for trying out all kinds of fried foods. You can definitely find enough latke and sufganiyot (donuts) recipes to fill up every day of Hanukkah (and then some), but there’s fortunately a world of oil-centric food...
It can be tough to figure out the best hostess gift or gift in general over the course of the long holiday season. So I pulled together some delicious gift ideas for the food lover in your life. And if I’m being honest, I would take one of each of...
(The Nosher) Each Jewish holiday has its iconic food: For Pesach it’s the symbolic matzah; for Rosh Hashanah it’s sweet honey and new fruits. For Purim we get the delectable hamantaschen; and for Chanukah it’s oil. That purified olive oil, used to rekindle the iconic seven branched menora that was...
