Are you wondering, what happened to the recipes for the Shabbat table posted on the website each week? I'm still cooking for the family –no worries.
Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park, MN asked me to write a weekly insert for haKol which linked to the theme of the year, “Beth El Eats.” That was in 5774—last year. Beth El has moved on to a new theme in 5775 but the recipes remain on our morejewishluck website. http://www.morejewishluck.com/extended-version/taste-of-torah
This year I’ll be compiling the columns into a book that will include supplementary material like a bibliography, a step by step guide on how to create your own Ta’am Torah, and instructions on how to create a game format for Ta’am Torah. Our hope is that the cookbook will be published around May 2015. Although this is not a collaboration with my sister, Leslie, it is a collaboration with our cantor, Audrey Abrams, and our rabbi, Alexander Davis, who have both contributed their thoughts and their design talents to the cookbook. In addition, many synagogue members have weighed in on the recipes. As you may notice from the comment, Leslie DOES consider herself a collaborator as do other family members who have been part of this multi-year experiment.
Meanwhile, hope you have a Shabbat Shalom and think about a white food this week for Vayetze, the parasha where Lavan (whose name means white) plays a major role.
Leslie was the first to offer a suggestion. She suggests cooking with leben ( a yogurt) this week, but, she’s a vegetarian.
