We think it’s best to shop at Whole Foods with a mission. The store is so full of tantalizing superfoods, quirky artisanal offerings, and kitchen “must-haves,” that before you know it, you’re at home emptying your shopping bag wondering, wait, why did I buy a mango peeler?
I was first introduced to malawah, a flaky, slightly sweet and buttery Yemenite bread, by my husband who loved making it as a late-night (usually post-drinking) snack, a habit he picked up from his time in Israel. As Leah Hadad writes in Jewish Food Experience, it was brought over to Israel by Yemenite Jews and became popular, cropping up in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. Kosher in the Kitsch’s Nina Safar even makes a savory hamantaschen using malawah.

A warm night, a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean, and a big bowl of watermelon with feta cheese: if we had to take a guess, that would be our mom’s definition of the perfect summer dinner. If you’ve never tasted watermelon and feta together before, it may sound like a strange combination. But give it a taste, and you will certainly be hooked. The sweetness of the juicy watermelon meets the rich, salty feta creating an explosion of flavor on every perfect bite.
