  • Maya Citrus Salsa With Red Snapper

    Xec (pronounced “shek”) is a sweet, sour, juicy citrus salsa from Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, and it makes a brilliant match with almost any kind of fish, cooked almost any kind of way. The combination…

  • Broccoli Salad With Garlic and Sesame

    This salad is made from uncooked broccoli tossed with an assertive garlic, sesame, chile and cumin-seed vinaigrette slicked with good extra-virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. The acid “cooks” the florets a little…

  • Egg Lemon Soup with Matzos

    Rather than making matzo balls for this comforting soup, I crumble matzos into the broth -- no schmaltz required. In Greece the chicken that is later served as part of the main course for…

  • Moroccan Fava Bean and Vegetable Soup

    When I am planning a Passover menu I look to the Sephardic traditions of the Mediterranean. The Sephardim were the Jews of the Iberian Peninsula; they had a rich culture and lived in harmony…
