Everyone gets excited when brisket is served. But sometimes you don’t want to wait until the holidays to enjoy this beloved dish.
Hard to believe, but summer is almost over. Almost. Just a few more days to savor some time at the beach, drinking on the porch and some delicious warm-weather eats. And, of course, we want you to try out some perfect summer Jewish food in your last few days. Here are a few of our favorites:
This is a perfect salad to eat for lunch on a weekday or as a first course for a brunch or even during a holiday like Rosh Hashanah. It’s especially nice when served plated individually and topped with the sweet potatoes and cashews.
If you spend your day job dreaming of bagels, rye, and knishes, and harbor a desire to live in the tropics, there’s a unique opportunity for you in the lush coffee-growing highlands of western Panama. According to our friends at The Gefilteria, Morton’s Bakehouse is looking for the right person to carry out the vision of the late Morton Rabkin, who opened his praise-worthy Jewish bakery and baking school in Boqueta, Panama, 3 years ago.

The wandering is over. With the much anticipated opening of Mamaleh’s, a new Jewish delicatessen in Cambridge’s Kendall Square, Bostonians no longer have to trek beyond their borders for home-cured pastrami, kreplach, and hand-rolled bagels with house-cured lox. The dine-in and takeout menus offer up traditional Jewish fare including noodle kugel and matzah ball soup, as well as new takes on some standards.
These days, not a week goes by in New York without some good bagel chatter.
Panzanella salad is about as classic summer (and Italian) as it gets. Day-old, crusty bread takes on a new, fresher life when paired with juicy summer tomatoes, veggies and a light dressing. There are so many variations of this beloved salad, but to me they all scream one simple thing: summer. Also resourcefulness. Also delicious. Ok, this salad screams three things to me.
There are so many different ways to enjoy hummus, and I must admit, I usually love them all – I grew up in Israel! And equal to my love of hummus is my love of Asian flavors. I even made sushi latkes last year for Hanukkah, which were a huge hit. This Asian-inspired green pea hummus is a marriage of my two passions for interesting hummus varieties and Asian influences.
