About Me

I'm a food writer who writes and lectures extensively on Jewish cuisine and culture. My latest book, Jewish Holiday Cooking: A Food Lover's Treasury of Classics and Improvisations, was named 2009 James Beard Finalist in the International Cookbook Award category (www.jewishholidaycooking.com). I believe that food is a metaphor for all that is delicious in life, for everything that we share with those we love. Jewish holidays are about more than food: they are about celebrating with family and friends.  By inviting others to share in our holiday meals, we connect them to the warm embrace of our family.
